Annual Reading Festival
Reading and literacy underpin everything that BiblioWorks strives to achieve here in one of the most impoverished parts of Bolivia. Every year, we spread the joy of reading during our annual Reading Festival in the city of Sucre.
The festival transforms the lives of children and families.The festival gathers 2,000 students annually and more than 20 organizations participate as presenters.
With your help, this event can continue to grow and have an even greater positive impact.
Even if you are not in Sucre to attend the festival, you can take part by:

In April, the BiblioWorks staff and volunteers organize brigades and promote reading on the public buses in Sucre. In order to carry out this activity, we coordinate with the union of bus drivers in the city.
Every Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm, the BiblioWorks staff sets up a space in the main plaza of Sucre where they share books and stories with children. Children listen to stories and also read independently. Some children come with their families and some come on their own.READ MORE
