“Book to a Friend”: children from all over the country collected 1000 favorite books in Crimea for the libraries of schools in new regions
The all-Russian campaign “A Book to a Friend” was held at the Artek International Children’s Center, during which children from 89 regions brought a thousand of their favorite books for children’s libraries in new regions. In the near future, the Popular Front will deliver all these books from Crimea to the libraries of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions. Participants of the 12th shift brought more than 1,000 books. Among the collected books are literature for all ages: fiction, general education and specialized children’s literature in Russian, classics and works of art by modern authors, historical and popular science literature, fairy tales by Russian and foreign writers, encyclopedias, reference books, copybooks and even coloring books.
We visit new regions quite often and know how important the educational process and the development of children’s potential are. It is significant that every Artek resident today brought from his home a favorite book that filled and inspired him. The guys hand over books to children from the annexed territories with an open heart and love. This is so important that it does not require evaluation. We are grateful that they trust us with such an important matter. The most important thing is to show feedback so that the guys know why they are bringing books, — the press service of the head of the regional executive committee of the Popular Front in Crimea quotes Alla Vertinskaya.
Artek residents carefully chose books for their new friends, as they are confident that such a gift will definitely cheer up their peers. The guys included postcards with warm wishes in each book and left contact details so that their peers who received the books would definitely contact them after reading and share their impressions.
I believe that the “Book to a Friend” campaign is an important event. When these books reach children from new regions, they will feel support from each of us. I brought a book about the history of St. Petersburg so that the children could learn about such a historical city. They might want to come and see all the sights in person, – notes Yulia Skalenko from St. Petersburg.
The all-Russian campaign “Book to a Friend” was created by the Russian movement of children and youth “Movement of the First,” its regional and local branches and is implemented jointly with project partners throughout the country.
