In recent years, under the government’s project of “Fostering a reading culture within community, with an orientation to 2030” a wide range of activities for spreading and developing the reading culture have been held in nationwide.

It not only honors the reading culture, contributes to the creation of a ‘learning society’, but also serves as an opportunity for people to improve their understanding of the rich national culture.
