Information for Ukrainian citizens

Šiauliai county Povilas Višinskis Public Library (Aušros ave. 62) is warm, cosy and open. The library is a good place to come together, find likeminded people, get to know the community, attend cultural events, find out about the news and other information or simply spend time quietly and in safety.

We have “Sensory reading activities” for children up to 10 years old (in Russian or Ukrainian languages). These readings are full of various interesting tasks and inclusive games that use sensations: sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste. The readings help the kids to relax, open up and communicate. Children with special needs (including autism spectrum disorder) can visit these activities.

We also invite mothers who can read in Ukrainian and Russian languages to help us organise the readings.

You can register for these activities by calling the number +37041523759 or by coming to the library.
