Like English Books?

The Friends of the Library, Erlangen has organized a Launch Event in conjunction with the Erlangen Library during their upcoming youth week.  If you have little avid readers; or you find yourself sick of reading the same books over and over again; or you just like to support a great cause -  please think about helping out in one of several ways...

1. "Become a member today."  Email folerlangen@gmx.de for details.
2. Donate books your kiddos no longer need... Books can be left at the library, or at Australiss, Martin Luther Platz 5. (just make sure to keep a couple books to swap with if you plan on attending the launch event!)
3. Join us at the book launch event April 4th or 9th - entertainment for the little ones, and "represent" (especially 3pm on the 4th, when the press will be there!) Schedule and details below.
