    The Chiroux library commemorates the First World War centenary. Debates, exhibitions, entertainment, workshops. In Liège, from February to September 2014.

    It's impossible to ignore the centenary of this episode of history, a key moment at the beginning of the 20th century, that was a genuine bloodbath for those involved at the time.

    2014 will, therefore, be a very busy year of 1914-1918 activities at Chiroux library. But recalling this conflict is not merely about the fallen soldiers or the struggles of the civilian population.

    The library offers you a diverse programme presenting trench art, the war through postcards, comic books, role playing entertainment, writing workshops, guided walks, conferences, etc.

    Check out the schedule!
