The Finnish Reading Center

The Finnish Reading Center

The Finnish Reading Center is a well established NGO, which promotes reading, literacy and literature. We arrange author visits and produce materials, information and reports on literacy, both in Finland and globally. We produce services and expertise for schools, libraries, the general public, media and policy-makers.

The Finnish Reading Center is also responsible for major national reading and literacy campaigns such as Read AloudBook Bag For Every Baby Born, and Reading Week. We work with close co-operation with schools, libraries, government and other organisations. We are also an active member of European reading and literacy networks, such as EURead and ELINET.

The Finnish Reading Center was founded in 1972.
