A new Czech Children’s Book Centre has recently opened in Prague with the aim of promoting quality children’s books by small publishers and encouraging a love of reading among the young. The institution, located at Janský Vršek just below Prague Castle, also serves as a meeting place for authors, illustrators and readers of all ages.

“We want children to meet the authors, to ask them all sorts of question about how a book is created and why it is important to read,” says Jakub Pavlovský, director of the newly opened Czech Children’s Book Centre.
