At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold, that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better.

Children and young people up to their 20th birthday receive free library subscriptions.
Children and young people up to their 20th birthday receive free library subscriptions.

The GGG public library gives children and youths free library cards. Support reading encouragement by making a donation. Nothing should hinder young people from visiting a library and entering the world of knowledge. Being well informed and confident in the handling of knowledge offers them more chances of employment, better integration and the ability to take part in cultural and political aspects of life.

For this reason, all children and young people up to their 20th birthday receive free library subscriptions at the GGG public library. For children and especially teenagers, who are still undergoing their educational training, the simple access to the book and media world is most important. With your donation, you can help the city library continue to offer this valuable encouragement to reading.
