Children’s Book Week at the library

The Philipsburg Jubilee Library is getting all geared up for Children’s Book Week 2014. Between November 16th and November 22nd the library will once again host a spectacular event, focused on the joy of reading and storytelling. This year’s theme is “Folktales and Fairytales from around the world “. The main event this year will be the children’s play “The Donkey tale”, performed by Youth theatre group Bonaire, under the leadership of artist and dramaturge Jackie Bernabela. The library was very happy to be able to collaborate with Ms. Bernabela and her group once again, since the “Donkey tale” was highly appreciated by the little ones during Children’s Book Week 2011. The play will be performed in the morning hours during the entire book week in the Cultural Centre.
