Donate a Book, Tour Tehran
People who donate a book to the only public library of Deh Kheir Village, in southern Tehran Province, will be given a free ticket to tour the Iranian capital Tehran. Rajabali Khosroabadi, the head of the provincial office of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, said the move is aimed at "achieving our sustainable development goals", Mehr News Agency reported. "Tourism must help the country achieve its SDGs and promoting the culture of book reading is one of the easiest and most affordable means of meeting those goals," he said. Highlighting the role of people in making this scheme work, Khosroabadi urged the residents of Tehran and its surrounding cities to participate in this scheme and donate books. Many houses are tombs of books that only attract dust and whose pages have never seen the light of day.
