After a little more than 2 and a half years from the opening of the new Municipal Library of Mestre, Villa Erizzo has expanded by hosting - in its completely renovated guesthouse - the VEZ Junior dedicated to users aged between 0 and 14 years. The cultural offer of Mestre has thus seen its expansion, giving young people and their families the opportunity to find a laboratory to read, research and learn. The goal is to bring new generations closer to the world of books by discovering the pleasure of reading alone or in company.
The library organizes animated readings, aloud readings, theatrical readings, events, workshops and other educational moments that foster curiosity and the exchange of ideas. Activities are organized both dedicated to free users and to educational and school structures of all levels and levels in the area.
