Promoting Reading in Chile


More and Better Readers Through Viva Leer

Creer más y mejores lectores – creating more readers with better reading skills, this is what the initiative Viva leer considers as its task. The work of the organisation based in Chile is grounded on several approaches.

The most important approach is the founding and endowment of 75 libraries. If they satisfy the criteria, public schools and educational institutions can apply for the establishment of a library.
