DKK 8.7 million to strengthen children’s and young people’s enjoyment of reading

-

A national initiative has allocated DKK 8.7 million to strengthen children’s and young people’s enjoyment of reading in 17 municipalities until 2025. The initiative for children’s and young people’s enjoyment of reading—a strengthened collaboration between primary school educational learning centers and public libraries will launch in spring 2023.

  • Interdisciplinary work will form the foundation for a robust reading culture, according to Tina Bang Jakobsen of Aalborg Central Library. Culture Minister Jakob Engel-Schmidt also believes that children’s enjoyment of reading is a shared responsibility, and he hopes that the project will get more children to choose the book over the screen.

Born in Istanbul in 1986, I graduated from the Department of English Translation Studies. Since then, I have translated over twenty literary works into Turkish, including children's classics like Andersen's Fairy Tales, Robin Hood, and The Railway Children. Since 2011, I have also been working as an editor for various publishing houses. In 2021, I relocated to Copenhagen and in 2023 began curating a cultural events newsletter primarily aimed at the international community living in Denmark.
