Hot for reading








City administration Radolfzell ©Heiss auf Lesen

The HEISS AUF LESEN© 2024 summer reading club is a campaign planned by the public library department of the Freiburg Regional Council and organized by libraries across the country. The Freundeskreis Stadtbibliothek e.V. and the Radolfzell public library are behind the campaign.

It is intended to entice children and young people to read during the vacations and create an incentive to visit the library. The aim of the Friends of the City Library campaign is to encourage children to read and to make reading fun. Even children who don’t read much are in the right place here.
Only club members can access the 100 brand new books with the HAL logo donated to the library by the Friends of the City Library.



Then come to the opening event.

The blogger Manon Wollheim “Buchkinderblog” is back with a great book presentation.
The blog is run by two mothers with four children between the ages of three and seven and presents the most beautiful children’s books. A good mix of classics and new releases.
Whether children’s books, travel tips, the best play ideas or parenting books, there is a suitable summer read for everyone.

When? Friday 19.07.2024 at 16.00 hrs
Where? In the city library
