I read not a long time ago from this useful program. I decided that we organize this Day in Hungary. I would like to ask for connection more Hungarian school, but I need for it more time. I send letter for the schools, and I hope some Library from Hungarian School will organize International School Library Day.
My name is Ibolya, from Hungary, Debrecen. I work as librarian and teacher of informatics. The name of my school is Angyalföld Téri Primary School (Debrecen)
In our school -- which is primary school -- with other teachers organized interesting day. From the program: We invited the librarian from other schools and public library and some people from political life, who can help us. This "talk show" -- I hope will useful: they will know more about the libraries and we will know more about they opinions.
We organize competition for children. It will be funny. We organize for children and teachers a very interesting program from Egypt.
So I hope it will be good for start in this "Day". I hope that will be more Hungarian, too.
Best wishes for You,
