Hungarian Library in February

Dear Friends,

Thank you to all who visited the library stall at the Hungarian Christmas Market! We sold 14 books out of 18. All proceeds go to the development of the library.

Thanks to István Domonkos “bácsi” who invited us to visit his library. He told us that the University of Washington has a Hungarian book section, too. We hope that in 2022 we can visit him and the Hungarian books at the UW, too.

Let me give you a little summary of the Library Quiz we played at the Market. You can reach the Hungarian Library at https://seattlehungarians.librarika.com. We have approximately 400 titles in the catalog. We don’t have the category “Angol nyelvű szépirodalom,” but we do have “Tankönyv,” “Szépirodalom” and “Gyerekirodalom.” The library restarted 2 years ago at the Overlake Christian Church in Redmond. We don’t have a limit on the books, but we kindly ask you to bring them back if you borrowed some. The logo and any other design of the library is made by Judit Pulay.

We also asked your opinion about what kind of books you would like to see in the library and what kind of events you are missing. We got great ideas like book club, more children books, events organized south of Seattle, story time. We’d like to respect all of these as our time and energy allow. In the meantime, let me introduce to you the ZsebRádió which you can reach via Zseboldal. You can listen to many great stories and the kids can gain such vital knowledge like what the expression “leesett a tantusz” means. ZsebRádió is also a podcast.

A bottle of Tokaji Szamorodni was drawn among the people who filled out the Quiz. The lucky winner is Tamás Farkas. Please, contact us at  seattle.konyvtar@gmail.com. Congratulations and a big thank you for playing with us!

About playing! The library made a reading challenge for kids for the winter break. Five little readers participated. They will get each a $ 25 gift card. Here are the names of the participants:

Lugosi Lona

Izabella Shull

Toni Shull

Földvári Stella

Kerekes Levente

Thank you for playing!

The silly time of Farsang is approaching. Let’s take a look at how the librarians of Gyöngyös are teaching what not to do in a library:

10 dolog, amit ne csinálj a könyvtárban! 😀 – YouTube 

It is worth checking out their other videos on YouTube, especially the one about the Russian literature.

Library dates in February 2022 will be announced through the event calendar. One thing is for sure, if there is a scout gathering in the Crossroads Park, the library will be there too!

Happy reading!
