I would like to know about the program "Luku-Suomi", it ended in 2004, right? However, there are not many papers or reports about it in English.
I need to know what Finnish Public libraries did for that program by themselves and with schools. What kind of roles the public libraries took part of. How much contributions they make comparing with the ones by school or other institutions.

Luku-Suomi ("Reading Finland") project was in years 2001-2004. The municipal libraries took part in the project by doing different projects with schools. They did mainly book talks or something similar. For example in 2001 Helsinki City Library organized Reading October -event in which librarians did book talks in schools and libraries for children aged 7-10. Different libraries participated to the project in various ways. In addition to book talks, librarians worked closely with schools as consultants.

I found a couple websites in English about Raading Finland:
