On the Day of the Library, the Public Library of Torre-Pacheco arranged over several activities yesterday.
Began delivering the contest "A name for our mascot", in which children had to name the mascot of the Library: a hedgehog, who lives around the Library.
The name chosen was "kebabs".
The winners were Guillermo Jimenez, Monica Garcia, Angel Martinez, Rebeca Castilian, Salahdinne, Gabi Lopez and Wisal.
After the awards was a storyteller represented by Sphere Theatre: "The Prince of Xirulacia"
Since 1997, every October 24 marks the Day of the Library.
The proposal arises from the Spanish Association of Friends of Children and Youth, supported by the Ministry of Culture, in memory of the destruction of the Library of Sarajevo, burned in 1992 during the Balkan conflict.
The initiative began to move to the public the importance of the library as a meeting place for readers of all ages with the culture, and as a means of improving training and human coexistence.
