    Guided tours, storytelling, plays, lectures, documentaries, crafts, discussions and reading workshop, were part of the activities that Biblioteca Infantil y Juvenil República Dominicana (BIJRD) offered to its customers to celebrate the World Book Day

    The symbolic commemoration set on 23 April every year held in honor to three prominent figures of literature: Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso. The day began at 9am with guided tours of each of the spaces in the library, where it was explained to participants from different schools about the origin of the celebration; in addition to inviting them to appreciate the bibliographic heritage of this cultural center.

    Participants coming from different schools were given the opportunity to analyze the main literary figures and works of such illustrious writers, so they can disseminate the importance that has this date worldwide.

    In the meantime younger children gave wings to their imagination, dancing, reading and performing with the children's theatre group of La Biblio de L@s Niñ@s.

    A workshop on writing and the evolution of paper was offered in order to encourage all attendees to read. The different stages this writing tool has undergone in the course of history were showcased in power point slides.

    The library staff also received a basic workshop "Definition and Book Concepts”, carried out by the Coordinator of the technical process of the library, Angélica Pérez, who explained everything related to the management, selection and cataloguing of books, mainly the characteristics that a text must have to be considered as such.

They also enjoyed the documentary "Shakespeare’s Enigma", which raises the question of the authorship of his works, ending with a feedback while they were gifted with book. "

    "We believe that books, writing, and speech should be for this country as important as a Museum, as a work of art, because they are a heritage that keeps us alive," said Dulce Elvira de los Santos, Director of the BIJRD during the closing ceremony.
