Mobile Library by the beaches of the county

It was this morning that we made a visit to the library that has moved around some areas of the county with more residents and has offered them much literature.

This is a project that has already been happening, but during the month of September will be on Wednesdays at Poça beach, on Thursdays at Carcavelos beach, Fridays at Guincho beach, Saturdays at Quinta da Alagoa and on Sundays on the Tamariz beach.

Being a project of volunteers Cascais 2018, this project, titled Mobile Library, is an initiative that starts from the partnership of the libraries of Cascais with the Foundation D. Luís I. Its objective is to take to the bathers and the vacationers not only literature, but also the national, international and global culture.

Raquel Ribeiro and Margarida Melo, the volunteers who will be present in the vehicle until September 30, from 10 am to 2 pm, stress that this has been a very interesting experience, a new way of working on communicative skills, of being responsible and helping '.

The books vary between novels, books by Portuguese authors, some bad works directed at the younger ones and those interested can also consult the "Local Fund", which includes all relevant information about Cascais. To order a book, those interested must sign up and then take the work for a week or just enjoy it on a sunny morning.

If beach, park, sun and a book are the ingredients for a perfect day, do not fail to visit our volunteers in these places by the end of the month.
