LIBRARIES




In Spain
We celebrate today ...


the Library Day



…to raise awareness among people 
on the importance of Libraries
in our society as a cultural meeting point 
for readers of all ages and backgrounds. 



"Books" (Department of Modern languages. CEPA Edrissis. Ceuta.)


By the way, 
Do you know the Spanish word for LIBRARY?
.....

Which of the following translations is the correct one?

a) LIBRERÍA          b) LIBRETA         c) BIBLIOTECA

BE CAREFUL!!

The word "LIBRARY" is an example of "False Friend" (or "falso amigo", in Spanish), 
because it is written in a similar way to a Spanish word, but the meaning is totally different.

(* You can have a look at more examples of  FALSE FRIENDS.)


What can you do in a LIBRARY?

Mark with a tick the correct answers:


Read books, comics, e-books, maps, ...

Visit expositions

Read newspapers, magazines, …

Use internet

Study

Meet interesting people (writers, …)

Watch films, listen to audio-books, …

Make friends (who love reading)

Use encyclopaedias, dictionaries, …

Enlarge your culture
... among many other things 
(apart from studying -of course) 
;-)

According to the dictionary...
A Library is a place containing books, recordings, or other reading, viewing or listening materials arranged and cataloged in a fixed way.

Do you normally go to libraries? 
What for?

To commemorate that date, the Library Day, 
we have selected a video recorded in a Public Library (TOLEDO, 2013)

Before watching the video,
Imagine any Public Library...

Can you guess what it is going to happen?


*************************************************

That social phenomenon is called a flashmob.

A flashmob is a group of people who meet suddenly in a public place 
and perform an unusual act for a brief time before quickly dispersing. 

They are often organized via Internet / Social Media.

  1. Celebrating the idea of library day is wonderful dear as one cannot have a better friend than books. I am also a writer and a voracious reader. Just a week ago I had been to a book launch event at LA event venues. It was great and I had so much fun there.
