Reading promotion

The promotion of reading, multiliteracy and various methods of reading for all age groups is a core area of libraries, which is supported by, for example, tips on what to read, reading circles and storytelling hours.

There are numerous different programs to encourage reading, especially amongst children and young people. Children’s reading confidence is increased at many libraries by, for example, reading-dog activities, and people of all ages can participate in various events where people read to each other.

In some libraries, reading coaches open up new reading experiences for library users, leading them to the  library’s interesting and well-maintained collections.
