The Fes Children’s library is a recently established lending library in the under-served Medina. Spend time teaching the kids to count in English! The library was started by a group of neighbors living in the Fez Medina. We wanted to offer the children in our community a place where they could discover books and develop a love of reading. This is the only children’s library in Fez.

 

The library has received more than 22,000 visits since opening in January 2015, with an average of 1000 visits each month. There is a huge need here and it's exciting to see the immediate response from the kids.

— The whole family will receive recipes, books and movies preparing them for their travel

— There is no minimum age as we can accommodate and customize any trip. To participate and engage, we feel children get a lot of a visit to Morocco beginning at 6 or 7 years old. There can be some long drives when getting a full look at Morocco. We will customize to the client and the family’s interest.  Children ages from 8 or 9 years old are ideal.  Once kids have a bit of patience for some ground travel we see them able to get a richer variety of experiences.

— Summer is very hot in Morocco.  We avoid the desert south in summer and we are sure to suggest hotels with swimming pools. Best to avoid the end of the Ramadan holiday month.  In 2017, Ramadan will be May 26-June 25; it moves 10 days earlier each year) and the big holiday right after Ramadan, Eid Al Fitr (June 26-27).  Best to avoid Eid Al Adha (in 2017, September 1-2; it moves 10 days earlier each year).

— No visa is required for this destination for a stay of up to 180 days.
