On the Kalevala Day, programs for children dedicated to the anniversary of the epos Kalevala were held at the National Library of Karelia.
Young readers have become participants of the program “Wonderful Mill Sampo”. Pupils guessed difficult Karelian riddles, played folk games, recalled the heroes of the epic poem and got acquainted with the traditions of Karelia.
The older guys tested their knowledge by taking part in a literary game on Kalevala.
Players coped with difficult tasks related to the epic poem. Before the game, team captains had to correctly write the names of some heroes of the epic poem – and this was a really difficult task!
The program participants recalled the Kalevala heroes, their activities and relationships, answered quiz questions, and also tried to ask their own questions to the opposing teams.
