Literary Pharmacy

Librarians of Vilnius County Adomas Mickevičius Public Library created Literary Pharmacy where different books were presented in a form of prescription. Literary prescription is a short, funny description of a book, with possible side effects listed, for example a growth in the likelihood of behaving unexpectedly well, an increased interest in history, or a new outlook on the world. Prescriptions for kids were also created where children literature is recommended in a playful way. These prescriptions are designed almost the same as the adult ones, but differs in color and are decorated with small illustrations. 

The Literary Pharmacy has already travelled to more than a few libraries, book fairs and festivals. The Literary Pharmacy project has involved a lot of people, visited many towns and villages and already shared thousands of literary prescriptions. We hope this initiative will last for a long time and every year will restart with newly developed ideas.So give us a call, and we will gladly come to your event.
