The importance of enhancing the accessibility of books in the public libraries and providing a variety of contents are often highlighted to promote active reading as a powerful tool to encourage children to pick up and finish a book themselves.

After Nam Dinh, Thua Thien Hue, Bac Giang, Tien Giang, Ha Nam, Hanoi, Dong Nai, and An giang is the eighth location we invested in more good books for Vietnamese children. We are still on the way to bring this up at national scope.”
