    Różowe Moliki is a readers’ club for children up to sixteen years of age. The group was established at Juliusz Słowacki Public Library. The Różowe Moliki meetings are based on joint reading, interpretative discussion and sharing experiences. They are also great opportunities to spread news from the world of books. Membership in the club allows, apart from discussions on literature, for participation in creative activities run at the library’s premises.

    Other clubs associated with Tarnów’s library include the Spoken Book Discussion Club run with the help from the Polish Association of the Blind, Literary Club "13" for older members and the Young Authors Group.

  • Kazimierz Brodziński

    Kazimierz Brodziński (1791–1835), an outstanding Polish pre-romantic artist, arrived in Tarnow at the age of 9.
