The French organisation “Collectif de Bibliothécaires et Intervenants en Action Culturelle” (an association of libraries and volunteers active in culture) is engaged in cultural and literary exchange in France. At an international level, it is engaged in promoting reading and the establishment of library services in developing and emerging countries. COBIAC was founded in 1979 and initially conducted fairs, reading festivals and othr literary events in France. A collection of books (Banque Régionale du Livre) was launched in 2000 to mark the organisation’s involvement in developmental activities. The organisation collects books donated by libraries and publishing houses in southern France and delivers them to libraries in developing and emergent countries.
