The Minister of Culture, Xiomara Maduro, requested the Commission Celebration National Holidays to approach the National Library to organize a kite-making workshop for our children and youth. They will exhibit all kites in the exhibition room at the National Library located at the George Madurostraat.

The workshop takes place Wednesday, April 19, at the National Library at George Madurostraat from 3.00 to 5.00 pm. Places are limited. You can call 5281500 to register children five years or older.
