The Department of Libraries of the City of Mazarrón has scheduled for March the activity "Tales with grandparents", an initiative that aims to promote reading connecting different generations, so that the youngest of libraries users can listen to great stories read by their grandparents.

The activity takes place thanks to the collaboration of the Centros de Día de Personas Mayores de Mazarrón and Puerto de Mazarrón and takes place every Tuesday in the library of Mazarrón and every Thursday in the library of the Port, from 17:30 hours.


The Mayor of Mazarrón, Alicia Jimenez and the General Director of Cultural Heritage, Maria Comas, attended the opening on Thursday in Murcia of the joint exhibition of Mazarron authors Juan Francisco Belmar and Mariana Sanchez titled "Invisibles”. Alicia Jimenez, welcomed the fact that two local artists are exhibiting in Murcia

The exhibition, which is located on the ground floor of the Archivo General de la Región consists of 16 thematic blocks, each formed by a photograph and a painting. 32 works of their authors try to make a wakeup call to those people who find their way in the streets and in most cases pass by "invisible". The exhibition denounces social exclusion and with it both Sanchez and Belmar seek to sensitise the visitor.

After a long journey that has travelled through many Municipalities in Madrid, Aguilas and Lorca, the exhibition "Invisibles" reaches the Archivo General, located on Avenida de los Pinos in the capital of the Region where it will remain open until April 6.
