The aim is to try to promote the Finnish culture, the language, but also increase understanding of the Finnish administrative area, which belongs to the municipality of Enköping. The municipality is required to offer various activities in Finnish.
"We wanted to raise the Finnish culture and the Finnish language so the library is a good place that everyone knows, it's free and open to everyone, we try to attract the widest possible audience and we had in mind when we planned that day," said Emma Nelsson, one of the organizers of the Swedish-Finnish family day.
For children between four and seven years old there was a fairy tale where they themselves participated and formed the action. Dancing a book is called a method, where children through dance and music stimulate language learning and self-creation. Visitors also had the opportunity to attend the Andu Räppäri, a story about Andus traveling to become a rap star. The story was told by Jesse Piisinen.
Circle of books today: Henry Uusimäki, Aila Uusimäki (support plate), Jorma Keskitalo, Anja Johansson, Markku Välilä and Annaliisa Berhhäll (table).
You also had the opportunity to attend a lecture in Finnish. Later, during the day, the Trio constrast played a concert with Finnish music.
Another of the program items was a book circle in Finnish. The group read Ruokarouvan tytar, written by Enni Mustonen.
"We have the circle of books because we like to read Finnish books and we are also trying to get a link to the major historical events. We read books we might not read in school, but repeat reading novels that were often written in the early twentieth century.
We do not read alone, but we stop and argue. Often a person has his own connection to historical events, says Markku Välilä.
