Donate a Book, Get a Museum Ticket within February 19-23

Donate a Book, Get a Museum Ticket within February 19-23

Yerevan was recognized as the World Book Capital on April 22, 2012, and within the framework of this event a number of major events were organized. Yerevan still holds this title, and in regard to the Book Gifting Day on February 19-23 the “Book Bank” program will be implemented in Yerevan.

Based on this program those wishing to visit a museum will have to gift a book to the museum and get a ticket in return. The books can be fiction or scientific. Other than that, the books should feature the name and the signature of the person who donates the book. This is important because upon the completion of the program those who participated in it can learn which library eventually shelters their book.

“Book Bank” program is carried out by “Flashmob Division” NGO with the assistance of Counterpart International Armenian Representation, USAID and the Ministry of Culture.

The museums will be open from 11 am to 4.30 pm. The books will be then transferred to the libraries of several communities. They are the communities of the regions of Shirak, Lori, Tavush, Vayots Dzor and Syunik.
