Artist and illustrator Julia Marti has developed and produced a unique, intriguing means of outreach in the form of a nine-part DIY [Do-It-Yourself] flyer series. In each part different questions are raised about the Bibliothek in a playful way, encouraging library visitors to become immersed and linger in the collection. The DIY is suitable for all ages of readers and writers. The DIY flyers are available to the public at the Alpenhof and can be used freely during the Bibliothek’s opening hours.
Our own specially created “pool” of outreach options called Sammeln und Baden [Collecting and Bathing] includes various modules for high school students [CH Oberstufe] and Konfirmandenunterricht [suitable as an outing for groups of young persons preparing for Protestant confirmation] as well as for educational staff. As a member of kklick.ch–Kulturvermittlung Ostschweiz [Cultural Outreach Network of Eastern Switzerland]–, we announce our standard options and proposals for workshops for schools at this website. By contacting us in advance, we can adapt any of the options through an exchange with you to accommodate your respective needs and expectations.
These outreach/educational modules endorse the premise that it is important now and will remain so in the future to create a space and opportunities for encouraging individual thinking, even at an early age.
The foundation of this engagement is our attitude that along with the teaching of regular school curricula, passing on “practical experience” or “thinking outside of the box” can provide youth with crucial and positive impulses for unfolding and developing their personal potential.
Our tours are aimed at interested groups, specialists, and firms and can be tailored to accommodate specific themes and needs. The tours are guided by Bea Hadorn or Mara Züst.
