ORGANIZATION OF CHILDREN'S ACTIVITIES IN THE FINNISH LIBRARY!

Marina Davydova fra Vadsø bibliotek har hospitert på biblioteket Library Apple i Helsinki der hun har lært å tilrettelegge aktiviteter for barn.

Thanks to program Reis & Ryk I got the opportunity to go for two weeks in Finland.
The library where I worked is located in Helsinki and is called Library Apple.

On my first day in the library I met Hans Swahn, library service manager. He showed me the library and made my work plan for all two week stay with them. The plan included: visits to several other libraries, the presence in many children activities and familiarization with the system operation of Finnish libraries.

Looking ahead to say that the plan was very interesting and informative!

I don't speak Finnish, and before this trip I was quite worried whether English will be enough for communication. Everything was simple, all libraries I visited employees where from different countries and speaking in English, Norwegian or Russian I was understood and could understand others.

Everybody I had talked to, were very attentive to me and tried to answer all my questions.

During my stay I visited three different libraries. I participated in several children's activities such as "Hour of fairy tales”, which was in several different languages, a children's matinee (hour program for consisting of songs, dances and poems for children). I attended meeting for mothers, which I really liked. It was mainly aimed for the mothers who have small children and need to advice on how to approach small children on day to day basis. Mothers were mostly non Finnish, who were very happy to talk to each other and where pleased to have an opportunity to practice their Finnish language skills.

During the first week of my stay in Helsinki, I learned a lot about working with children. I know that this knowledge will help me in my line of work in the future.

I look forward to the next week and I am sure this will be as interesting and informative!

Sincerely Marina Davydova.
