More Books in Gozo's Libraries
EUR4,000 worth of books
The EcoGozo Regional Development Directorate within the Ministry for Gozo procured EUR4,000 worth of books to be distributed among Gozo’s libraries. The books include biographies and autobiographies of Maltese personalities and other personalities that have a connection to the island of Malta. The books were presented to 13 Gozitan libraries by the Minister for Gozo Anton Refalo on Thursday 8th June 2016.
The purpose of this procurement of books is to equip Gozo’s libraries with more interesting reading material and thus encouraging people to read more. Further to this, such an initiative should also expose children and adults alike to established and up-and-coming local authors. The books are in Maltese and English and are suitable for people of different ages.
In a short speech the Minister for Gozo highlighted the importance of reading and reiterated the Ministry’s commitment to keep adding value to the shelves of Gozo’s public libraries.
