#ioleggoperché 2019


The 2019 edition of #ioleggoperché took place from 19 to 27 October. The initiative, launched by the Italian Book Publishers’ Association, is held annually to supply Italian school libraries with books free of charge. This year a great number of book stores, including 27 belonging to the Daughters of St. Paul, participated in the 9-day event, becoming points of reference and contact for clients who wanted to participate in the project. Many of these customers were happy to choose a book, purchase it and then place it in a basket for donation to a school, thus contributing to enriching the book heritage available to students, in the conviction that school libraries are essential to igniting a passion for reading from an early age.
