Community Library Pró-Saber São Paulo

 

Inaugurated in May 2015, the Community Library of Pró-Saber SP emerged with the support from the Arymax Foundation and several donors from the society thanks to crowdfunding. The campaign aimed to reach 1000 readers in order to be able to expand our actions. Today we count with 700 registered readers. What makes this experience different is the enhancement of the autonomy of the child as they can come and register in the library without the presence of an adult. On a daily basis we receive children and teenagers who circulate the library on the lookout for new information and knowledge. We believe that a reading space goes beyond just lending a book, it is also an environment for exchange and socialization.
