Biblioteca dei Ragazzi (via Tripoli 34, near piazza Santa Croce), reopened its doors on March 19, having been closed since October 2019. The space for socializing and sharing literary interests hosts many free activities for children aged 0-14 years and their families, from workshops and readings to book presentations and more.

18,000 multimedia materials and books have been made available, with the ground floor home to comics, language books, board games and news, while the first floor features fiction and non-fiction in Italian and other languages for children. Little ones can settle into mini chairs and tables, while study stations for bigger kids give ample space for further learning. 

Opening hours are from 9am to 1pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, 9am to 1pm, and 2 to 5.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 2 to 7pm on Fridays.
