The library’s summer quarter, toy library and social life space are back in service at Nogent-le-Rotro.

For the 12th year in a row, the municipal library, the toy library run by the Ludo’Parche association, the social living space of the childhood-youth center (EVS) as well as the ATD Quart-Monde association are resuming their summer quarters. In this second half of July. At the foot of the building in Gauchetières, in the castle grounds of the Counts of Perche or near the Théâtre de Verdure, books, wooden and outdoor games will be available for the family.

These activities “beyond the walls” are another way for these municipal and allied structures to reach out to families in an informal way to the public. “There are families that we don’t see in the toy library during the year but we meet them every year during this summer quarter”, testifies Celine Rodriguez, one of the toy librarians and co-responsible for the Ludo’Perche Association.

Convenient appointment

Last year, with the restrictions associated with the health crisis and especially with the installation of attendance meters, the summer quarters affected about 220 people in six meetings. In 2019, it was over 340 people.

The summer quarters have also evolved somewhat over time, as explained by municipal library chief Charlotte Violette. “Initially, we organized six meetings over three weeks and at two different sites, Gauchettiers playground and Winston-Churchill Square. Two years ago, we added the Théâtre de Verdure to it, hosting six meetings in two weeks, and the Saint-Jean Plateau meeting moved to the castle, which gives us a very pleasant atmosphere”.
