Family Times in project HOME

28 July 2021

Many parents often think to themselves: “How can we make our life more varied without going somewhere very far?“. Three libraries (Ludza Town Library and Jēkabpils City Library in Latvia and Rokiškis District Public Library in Lithuania) have started a cycle of entertaining and educative activities “Family Time” for their local families. What do they offer?

Topics of the Family Times are so different, that it is impossible to list all of them. At every Family Time in Ludza, children and parents are invited to take part in a workshop and games. They learn about cats’ life, candies, money, play the large floor game “Circus”. On the 20th and 23rd of July, 2021, some families visited three local family farms.

In July Juozas Keliuotis Rokiškis District Municipality Public Library started the long-awaited live Family Time events in the newly renovated premises. The families took part in the Family Time activities organised by the librarians with great interest: they watched the amazing play “A Wonderful Wife” and made paper puppets themselves, during the educational programme “Secrets of Wood”, decorated wooden birds, created markers for books with elegant ornaments during “Black and White Thought” creative workshop.  An unforgettable impression for families left the trip to the “Lavender Vanagynė” homestead, where they not only learned the magical features of lavenders, but also had the opportunity to taste sweets, drink tea with a unique lavender taste, and make a lavender-scented soap.

Jēkabpils City Library – a library of Project Partner 3 (Jēkabpils City Municipality) – organised a unique Family Time. It was a three day long camp for single parents with children “Two is a Family”. The society does not consider such families as a family of full value. Jēkabpils City Library proved the contrary and has encouraged single parents, who are bringing up children alone.
The project is going on. Many other Family Times are planned – meetings with authors, with local interesting people, lectures for parents about business and nature, thematic trips and practical workshops. In total, the partners will organise at least 114 Family Time activities.
