From Monique, 86, to Sunny, almost 5 years old, all ages were represented in the Salle des Échoppes, transformed for the occasion into an annex to the municipal library. A range of works by local authors, such as Hélène Legrais or the Reynésien Jean-Paul Salini, classic novels, crime novels, historical novels, comics for children, etc. were installed on a large table and on the platform, available to readers. Many of them responded to the invitation from Monique Scutenaire and Mayor Guy Gatounes to discover this living space dedicated to reading. The mayor congratulated Monique and her colleagues Patricia Croquet and Michelle Sopel for their involvement in the maintenance of the structure, insisting on the importance of the act of reading for the development of the individual. Monique, after giving the customary thanks, expanded on the role of libraries. “In Greek, the word ”biblio” means ”book” and ”thêkê”, ”repository”… It promotes culture and offers a means of accessing knowledge, it enables knowledge accumulated by past generations… You can target your tastes by trying different types of reading without it costing a penny. Parents can have their children read their first books and then give them a taste for reading…”. She was able to convince since a dozen people have recently registered and will benefit from this free loan service. Some lucky people left with collections of books won in the raffle. And the afternoon ended with the usual terrestrial foods offered by the town hall. To access the library premises, follow the arrows from the Pont-de-Reynès pharmacy, Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. For any information, call 07 81 77 32 72.
