VIRTUAL UNIVERSITY OF 3rd AGE
The Municipal Library of Semily was the first consulting centre of the Virtual University of the Third Age in the Liberec Region. The University of Seniors is attended by about sixty clients from Semily and its surroundings. Regular meetings every fortnight are accompanied by excursions and joint meetings in non-traditional places. Students already know each other and form an excellent collective. They learn a lot at the courses and they take working on final tests as a challenge. The Virtual University of the Third Age enriches the library's program offer and engages seniors in its activities.

Every day, an attractive program was prepared for the children, always based on one selected book that everyone could literally experience.
WE PLAY THEATER
- for kindergartens, first grade elementary schools sometimes for the general public fairy-tales are played by the Municipal Library workers of Česká Lípa. Mostly they are their own simple dramatizations of folk tales or their own puppet performances. In the repertoire there is a fairy tale About Budulínek, About Dog and Cat, About Goldfish, Gingerbread House, About Red Riding Hood, About Bad Goat and more. The puppet theatre primarily serves to portray the legends associated with our city and region. It is worth mentioning that these own theatre performances were played in the library 51 times for more than 1,000 children's visitors only in 2017.
