A night at the library… for toys!

Children invited to drop their toys for a sleepover at the Gozo Central Public Library on June 30

Children aged four to nine are invited to bring their favourite soft toy for a sleepover at Gozo Central Public Library on Friday, June 30, from 9am to noon.

The librarians will be enrolling the toys as library members and issuing personalised library cards for them on this special occasion.

Children are encouraged to stay on for reading sessions by the National Literacy Agency from 9am onwards and to create an eye mask for their toy.

Participants are then invited to come back to the library on Saturday, July 1, to pick up their toy and a special gift.

One can sign up their children for this event by e-mailing events.library@gov.mt.
