The Forest Hidden in Books

Our activities / Environmental Activities / The Forest Hidden in Books

In recent years, the Town Library has been involved in the nationwide campaign “The Forest Hidden in Book”, whose initial idea was hatched in 2011 during the International Year of the Forest. The main organizer is the National Forest Centre in cooperation with libraries and elementary and secondary schools throughout Slovakia. The goal of the project is to offer children and young people, through books, a view of the importance of forests and forestry for society, environmental protection, and the shaping of positive attitudes towards nature, while at the same time the need for reading. The campaign also wants to point out, along the way, the origin of books. As part of the project the Piešťany Library prepared several events – discussions with forestry teachers, lectures, film screenings, workshops, and book presentations focusing on the topic of forests and their protection.
