  • Children's Dragon Library
    Children’s library

    The previous children's section was reorganized and moved to a separate, more spacious room in 2020. The entrance of our library is clear (accessible), so it can be used by pram easily. The new  children’s library can be reached by turning to left of the entrance, on the groundfloor.

    It offers the wide variety of 13000 volumes of the collection of children's books to children and their parents visiting the library. Everyone, from babies to school-age children, can find readings they are interested in. Books for paging (by turning the colorful pages), picture books, story books, non-fiction works (to enlarge knowledge), novels for children and more interesting items are offered to you.
    A cosy teen's room is furnished for teenagers where they can read or learn separately from other visitors. Adventurous and romantic novels as well as works of science fiction recommended especially to teens can be found in that small room.

    Registration recorded (written) in Terms of Use of the library is the basic condition of library visit; it is free of charge for all who are under 16. Membership entitles you to borrow up to 8 books from the library.

    Programmes for children's group:
    Our library provides opportunities for school groups and kindergarten groups to take part in thematic programmes including programmes of library use.
    We ask teachers to make advance reservation on any of our contacts: fszek0401@fszek.hu, +36 1 369-4979 or personally. 
    Group registration takes place after making an appointment by kindergarten teachers and school teachers, all children get reader's card (membership card).
    Each event lasts about an hour. For the first time there is a guided tour in the library; we get acquainted with the structure and rules of the library, books of children’s library and process of circulation. Every occasion is finished by borrowing documents.
    Our objectives are to make children love reading, help them in becoming  regular readers and right socialization of the children.
    Rhyming fun programmes for ages 0-3 with lap-games and nursery rhymes are held once in a fortnight (every two weeks). The other event held once in a fortnight (every two weeks) is the slide projecting program called "Slides mania".
