EL CAMPELLO library has come up with some interesting suggestions for a good read over the Festive Season.
In what was the second edition of the library and council Culture department’s imaginative ‘Aparadores culturales’ (cultural shop windows) initiative, librarians Daniel Alberola and Lydia Garceran proposed a dozen titles for this Christmas.
With the library transformed for the event into a dining room set for a Christmas meal, the pair served up books including Greta Thunberg’s Our House is on Fire, a Danielle Steel romance, Suri Hustvedt’s Memories of the Future, Jeff Kinney’s Greg’s Diary and Ken Follet’s Notre Dame.
“This is a Christmas menu within everyone’s reach, with well-known national and international writers and books for all ages”, Daniel Alberola commented
The first Aparadores culturales event in November focused on reading suggestions based on detective novels and thrillers. It was the success of the day which prompted the council and the library to organise a second this month to, in the words of the Culture councillor Dorian Gomis, “highlight the importance of our library resources, made up of more than 34,000 titles, and encourage reading.”
It is, added Daniel, “a way of reinventing ourselves as a library and as the cultural agents we are.”
