How it all began?
In the spring of 2011, the puppeteer and one of the Class Acts founders Leah
Gaffen suggested to organise a collection of English children's books
among the members of the organisation at Korunní Library. The result is an
English corner in the children's department welcoming both native
speakers and Czech children learning English. You will find everything from
booklets and picture books, first reading and comic books to books for teenagers
and educational literature. The selection of books is wide and varied with new
books being continually donated by our readers and bought.
