It is wonderful to see the work being done by this Library. Seeing the faces of the neighborhood children during story time was one of the highlight of our trip.

This is an exciting development in the Fez Medina! The first ever children's library is a small gem of a place supported by donations and gifts from visitors around the world. Around 1000 children use the library each month.
"When I come to the library, I feel like I am entering a palace of beautiful stories. The library has made things better because we learn more how to read and write. When I am reading a book, I am happy because I feel like I am part of the story." ~ Lamiae

The Medina Children's Library is overwhelmingly popular with the local children. In this town of narrow (but enchanting!) alleyways and high-walls, the library gives visitors access to the larger world. The women who run the library are full of passion and have really created something special here. I hope to see it expand in the future so it can accommodate all of the children who want to visit. A great place to make a donation!

Whether you're travelling with children or just want a glimpse into a wonderful local initiative you should check out the Medina Children's Library. If you plan your visit to coincide with a story time you will have the joy of seeing the local kids being opened up to a world of learning in a nurturing and safe space. When we came bearing books (Arabic is best) and donations for the running of the space we were lucky enough to see a group of children being read the story of Malala Yousafzai and the discussion afterwards about what these children wanted to do with their lives, after being inspired by Malala's bravery in standing up for education. They all wanted to stay in school and to go on to do great things. A visit here will leave you inspired and a donation will help them to continue to do great things fro these children.

We were told of the Children's Library in advance and arranged a visit. We also took books--they need basic readers in Arabic, not French or English. And on our visit we met very dedicated, excellent readers truly excited about learning, and a taste of how much a children's library can add to a very concentrated gathering of humans. It was such fun. If you like young children, are excited about the universality of learning, and want a taste of something truly exciting, go to the Children's Library. It is supported by a number of locals and is a tribute to all in a country previously challenged by a low literacy rate.
