The Sandman has been delighting children for over 60 years with its cheerful stories, which are shown daily on rbb, MDR and KI.KA. It is now part of the exhibition "Books move". In the spirit of the Sandman, the Friends of Friedenstein Castle have joined forces for a read-aloud event to congratulate the library on its birthday. On two afternoons, members of the Friends will read from their own favourite children's books.
Further date: 21 May, 3.30 p.m.
About the jubilee year
2022 is a particularly eventful year for the Gotha Research Library. We are celebrating the 375th anniversary of our founding. Under the motto "Books move", a series of events await you on site and online. The anniversary year is at the same time a caesura in the history of the research library and a time of great challenges. We are moving a large part of our books out of the east tower of Friedenstein Palace, where the library has been housed since the end of the 17th century, in order to renovate the building. At the same time, we want to create optimal opportunities for our users in the library and in virtual space to continue researching and working with each other and with our outstanding library objects and collections.
