Free workshop Digital in the library

Contact with the general practitioner or the hospital is increasingly done digitally via your smartphone, tablet or computer. Very practical because it takes less time and effort and you always and everywhere have access to your data or those you care about. But what if you have questions about this or want to know how it works? In this workshop you will get to know digital care.

Library books Christmas workshop in Library Voorschoten

In the week of Green Friday and Non Shopping Day, we experience the most beautiful recycling adventures with Pop-Up Atelier ‘Mooi van Melissa’ with minimal resources.
During this workshop you will transform our old books that have been read to pieces into original, unique Biebboek Christmas cards and festive star garlands.
The workshop is fun for everyone from 6 to 60+ and it is extra fun if a child comes with a (best) parent, neighbour, babysitter, uncle or aunt. But of course you can also come alone.

Workshop makes cartoons

For all young people who love comics and for those who didn’t know it yet! Esther Holtkamp has been an editor at Anders And Ugeblad for many years and tells how a cartoon is created in Anders And, and how you too can make a cartoon. For example, do you have to be really good at drawing to make a cartoon? (Answer: no!) and what is an onomatopoeia?

You will of course also want to start making your own cartoon. We are curious about your results!
