May this holiday season bring you peace and calm, and may you find the time to read more books and expand your knowledge.
To get you in the holiday spirit, we have found a few examples of how Polish libraries and cultural institutions celebrate Christmas.
The Christmas tree is the most important thing!
As of the end of 2021, there were almost 7.7 thousand public libraries in Poland. During the year, 4.8 million readers borrowed almost 90 million volumes.
Warsaw, the city where we live, has the highest number of public libraries per capita in the world. We are lucky to have three libraries within the 10-minute walking distance:-)
All the best to you 🎄
