South China Morning Post Features Let’s Read in Profile of Indonesia’s “Quirkiest” Library
“Our first audience is not schools. It’s not classrooms,” said Morgan Belveal, a programme specialist with The Asia Foundation, which is working with several groups in Jakarta, and in East and West Java provinces through its “Let’s Read” initiative. “We want to create books that are beautiful, creative and engaging, so the habit will stick.”
He added: “While it is hard to know how many informal community libraries there are in Indonesia, it is easy to see that there are thousands of these libraries that are opened and managed by passionate volunteers who are building reading movements in their communities.”
