ORANJESTAD - The National Library hopes that many children read books to learn more and quicker, and that is why they have books for every child in Aruba.

Children’s books Festival 2021.To stimulate reading more, the National Library is organizing a week full of books in November. A week-long book party where the children can meet with many authors and illustrators and plenty of books. These are books about children who dream of their future careers and becoming artists, carpenters, nurses, professional athletes, politicians, agricultures, writers, etc. There are so many careers to choose from. For every child, a dream and a future. Together we will read books and explore some options, as there are many stories to choose from.

Reading is nice either at school, at the bookstore, or at the library.

The National Library is presenting its gift of the Children Book Week 2021. This book is full of inspirational stories and poetry for the children in Aruba. The book title is “Bira loke bo kier!
