HRH The Crown Princess visits "Danish" children's library
HRH The Crown Princess today visits the "Danish" children’s library Libro Alegre in connection with The Crown Prince Couple’s official visit to Chile.
The Crown Princess and a class from a Chilean secondary school visit the volunteer-run children’s library, which is led by the retired Danish school teacher Anne Hansen. The children’s library is located in the port city of Valparaíso and was opened in 2001 by Anne Hansen, who wanted to give poor children from the slum areas the opportunity to read books.
On the occasion of the launch of three new Danish children’s books in Spanish, Anne Hansen will read aloud from one of the books, and The Crown Princess will answer questions from the school children. Afterwards, The Crown Princess will hand out copies of the book to the school children.
Today, approximately 20 volunteers from various countries are affiliated with the library.
