Hope to hear from you。Thank you!
The promoting of reading is an important task for both schools and libraries. Reading books in central in schools, pupils read and do projects, essays, analyses of many sorts in schools. Library is often a partner in these projects, we recommend books, booklists, provide books both to school classes and pupils and other people that come to libraries. You can find information about promoting reading at this site The Finnish Reading Center, https://lukukeskus.fi/english/
There are many projects where reading is promoted for instance, Lukuliike https://lukuliike.fi/en/, Lukuinto (motivation for reading) http://www.lukuinto.fi/, Lue lapselle (Read to your/a child) https://luelapselle.fi/.
Libraries have various methods to promote reading, for instance Helmet Reading Challenge https://www.helmet.fi/en-US/Events_and_tips/News_flash/Helmet_Reading_Challenge_2019(173870)
Helmet Reading coach, https://www.helmet.fi/fi-FI/Tapahtumat_ja_vinkit/Vinkit/Kirjaston_Lukuvalmentaja
Reading assistance and recommendations, Lukuopas in Kokkola (many other city libraries have personal recommandations services too) https://www.kokkola.fi/palvelut/kirjasto/palvelut/fi_FI/lukuopas/
Lukudiplomi Pirkanmaa (diploms for reading are list of books for school classes in different grades, several libraries have them) https://piki.verkkokirjasto.fi/web/arena/pirkanmaan_lukudiplomi
Finnish libraries produce short programs about book, for example young readers Sivupiiri Kirjatrailerit (national) https://www.kirjastokaista.fi/tag/kirjatrailerit/
Oulu city library, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvrVc1QwJF9Y1dsgBJKnjhg
Kirjastokaista, national https://www.kirjastokaista.fi/kirjallisuus-ja-kulttuuri/
In the study program for library studies literature can be included, but it is usually not central and not very inclusive, for instance in Seinäjoki https://opinto-opas.seamk.fi/index.php/en/21/en/55/KITI19/year/2019
