Some chapters of the chosen book will be read every two weeks.
A motivational introduction to each book will take place.
Activities will be carried out before, during and after reading.
Interesting references from the book will be sought.
Creative writing will work and we will publish in a blog.
Through this club, the aim is to promote, enhance and stimulate the user's approach to books, improve reading habits, ensure their reading growth, move from knowing how to read to want to read and encourage the playful aspect of reading.
"The effort that has been carried out by the staff of the Municipal Library, as well as the City Council, which has increased the budget in animation for reading, aims to give more space to this space not only as a traditional library, but as a meeting place for all those committed to culture "said María Dolores García Rojo, Councilor for Culture of the City of Lorquí.
