“The Republic, in implementation of articles 2, 3 and 9 of the Constitution, favors and supports reading as a means for the development of knowledge, the dissemination of culture, the promotion of civil, social and economic progress of the nation, the formation and well-being of citizens”.

This is how we read in law 15 of 13 February 2020 concerning the promotion and support of reading.

From here we understand, if ever there was a need, the essential role of reading.

But to read you need to have books available. The MMAB as municipal library in 2021 lent 13,175 volumes, of these 2564 from 0 to 15 years.

School libraries then play a central role in the education of reading, especially reading aloud for younger children.

Hence the choice of the Municipality of Montelupo to join the ioleggoperché initiative, a large collection of books in support of school libraries.
It is organized by the Italian Publishers Association, supported by the Ministry of Culture – Directorate General for Libraries and Copyright by the Center for Books and Reading, by the Sports Department of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, in collaboration with the Ministry of ‘Instruction.

The Municipality has purchased volumes to donate to all public and private schools in the area and then in recent days has written a letter to families inviting them to support the project by donating a book.

«Research confirms how important it is to get girls and boys closer to listening to reading because it is precisely through this experience that we give them the opportunity to develop and broaden their skills. We therefore ask those who want to buy a book to donate to the service you attend on the basis of the indications that you can share with the educational staff of your reference.
The initiative will take place from 19 to 29 November 2022», says the councilor of the school Simone Londi
