Fundraising to renovate the Children’s library at the French Institute
A cocktail designed to raise funds for the renovation of the Children’s library was organised to raise funds for the children's library. It is an amazing project and its challenge is to turn the present library into a modern space, perfectly suited for children of the 21st Century. In other words, it will double the existing surface; create two levels, two places where children will be able to learn and discover for the kids aged 3-7 and one for children aged 8-12 will be given a total upgrade to include new digital tools.
The objective of the event was to draw attention to this new initiative and to raise financial supports. Sylvie Bermann, French ambassador to the UK was there to present the idea; she invited parents from different French schools in London to get involved in this renovation of the Children’s library and to join forces and promote French culture.
It is true that this project is important. Do you know for instance how many pupils come to the French institute after school, and devour comic books, novels, magazines? These kids are spending hours in the reading room… and they are our future ambassadors of French language.
The Institute and its Trust have to raise £600,000 altogether to finance the construction which is announced for the spring of 2015. Up until now, they are still short of £100,000. That is why they call for online donations. Each contribution, even the smallest one, matters. Get involve and support the renovation of the Children’s library!
