Another summer and books are again available at the beaches of Poniente and Arbeyal. A library service will be offered during the months of July and August to promote reading and other related activities at a privileged spot: Gijón's beaches.
The beach library project aims to bring culture and reading habits closer to all audiences, from children to the elderly, thanks to different high quality activities. This service will be offered from 12 in the morning up to 6 in the afternoon at the entrance of both beaches, at a wooden cabin that houses the books and where there will be also other activities.

A cultural and creative space is made available at both Poniente and Arbeyal beaches, with educational and leisure services, with a programme of activities as follows:

  • Reading area, with around 150 books and daily newspapers.
  • Free playing area.
  • Arts and painting area.
  • Book lending.
  • Book market.
  • Bookcrossing.
  • Thematic chat shows.
Other possibilities are braille reading and tablets with Internet access to be able to surf the Web or access other e-books.

Moreover, remember that the beach library service offers the possibility to participate in different workshops and other programmed activities for kids aged from 3 to 12. Creative writing, shadow plays and gymkhanas are other activities that will be offered.
