IBBY Indonesia: Reading promotion in remote rural areas

When the Indonesian Government removed the postal charges on book donations in 2017, the number of community libraries in Indonesia grew rapidly. However, the volunteers in these community libraries do not know how to effectively promote reading. IBBY Indonesia will host an introductory three-day workshop on using books in reading promotion and creating a library for 20 volunteers from community libraries of remote areas of the eastern part of Indonesia.
