Promoting Reading Promoting Reading

The low rate of reading per capita in the country is a cause for great concern, said Majid Gholami Jalise, caretaker of the Iranian Book House Institute. Libraries of high standards and research-oriented education can help improve the reading culture, which is an important element of development and progress. Improving the quality of books and the number of libraries, besides promoting the reading habit in the national media “can indeed be a great help,” he noted, reports IRNA.
