Libraries and media libraries of the Metropole de Lyon

Reading Nights take place from January 19 to 22, 2023. Take part in the activities organized in the libraries and media libraries of the municipalities of the territory to shake with this year’s theme: fear!

Fear is the theme of Reading Nights 2023. Metropolis is joining forces with Quais du Polar to offer spooky activities for young and old at various libraries and media libraries in the metropolis. Here is our pick.

This features Mortissa, who realizes that the unicorn blood is gone… However, it’s a very dangerous weapon if it falls into the wrong hands!
