Librarians trained to service very young children in Lebanon
45 book experts and librarians from all parts of Lebanon participated recently in a training workshop in UNESCO’s Office in Beirut to be introduced to public library services for children up to three years old.
The two day workshop end of January aimed at capacity building for librarians and book experts to help them setting up services for the yoiungest in their libraries for example by selecting and acquiring adequate books.

The project was launched by the Lebanese Ministry of Culture and supported by UNESCO. “ I belive that this is is a precedent in Lebanon and the region, where children in this age have never been targeted in terms of library services”, says George Awad of the UNESCO Office in Beirut.

Over 45 book experts and librarians from all governorates of Lebanon benefited from this training workshop. The training was carried out by the French NGO ACCES through its trainer Ms. Zaima Hamneche.
