This Christmas, at the National Library of Greece (NLG) we are visited by hundreds of thousands of saints, we read stories and learn truths and lies about those who will bring … upside down the library! We will find a way to hide a lion, discover the smallest Christmas present and experience the magical journey of a snowflake.
From Monday 19/12 until Wednesday 04/01/23 every afternoon at 17:00 m.m, in the lending Department of the NLG, readings will be held for the little ones (and a little older!) friends of books who love Christmas and their stories.
Put on your festive smiles and Christmas socks and come and travel together in a world full of elves, goblins, dwarves, fawns and many many books!
