Municipal Library of Polygyros

The Municipal Library of Polygyros has been operating since February 2012 in its new location, in the familiar Traganou, a restored traditional building, in the historical fabric of the city. In its warm and welcoming spaces, it houses thousands of book titles for reading or borrowing, while it has a separate children’s and teenagers’ section.

In the winter season of 2012-2013, actions for children with the central title “Let’s go to the library” were developed in the Municipal Library of Polygyros, which were embraced by students, parents, teachers and institutions.

The authors of the books, Stella Michailidou and Vasiliki Nevrokopli, among others, participated in these activities, while the children read, dramatized, acted, sang and created their own constructions with ideas from the books.

In the Summer of 2013, the Municipal Library of Polygyros, as part of its participation in the Future Library network and the program “In libraries, the world is colorful”, took part in the reading and creativity campaign.

From June 14, actions aimed at kindergarten and elementary school children were implemented with the main goal of getting to know each other and building a strong, long-lasting relationship between children and libraries.

Every Wednesday and Friday afternoon, the area of the Municipal Library of Polygyros was flooded with happy voices and smiles, as the children combined reading books with painting, crafts, singing, playing.

Thanks to the passion and love of volunteer teachers, young and old children enjoyed with undiminished interest dozens of brand new cool books, learned to work collectively, spent their free time creatively.
