Life in the Universe !

Children's Library
Free entry
During the Children’s Culture Festival, families and school groups are invited to craft their own spaceship. Those who want to are welcome to attach it to the wall of the exhibition and thereby create and complete the exhibition during the festival.
Life in the Universe is based on a story by Zakiya Ajmiand and Sara Lundberg. It is about Liv who is a young girl that lives on the top floor in a house in the city, just beneath the starry sky. With her telescope, Liv looks up into space and takes on a journey in a spaceship with a girl that has been traveling in space since the Space Race many decades ago. In space, light years away from Earth, Liv gets to visit a planet which is the home of her new friend as well as a lonely black dog. How would life be away from the city lights and what Liv calls a home? How would you think it would be like to experience the world from far above?
We welcome you to a spacey visit at the Nordic house!
Free entrance and everyone is welcome!
A new spacey game in the children’s library. 
Spacedog hunt!  Fun game for the whole family!

In the story Life in the Universe the space girl has a dog. It doesn´t have a name but it is most likely inspired by the dog Laika, who became the first living creature sent into space, in November 1957. Ten space dogs, in different sizes, are placed around the library inside the exhibition. Those who can spot all the dogs can write down the answers, put in a mailbox at the exhibition and become a part of a competition. In the end of August, the winner will be announced and will receive spacey awards!
