The importance of reading and the help it gives to foster creativity among children were the core message of President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca during the reading ceremony, organised by the National Literacy Agency at the Handaq secondary school.

The President said that stimulating the reader’s brain is the main purpose behind the various programs and initiatives that promote reading.

“Reading can help our country’s society to think critically, and become more active citizens who develop Malta even further”, explained the President.

The President also said that she wanted to emphasise the importance of reading through the opening of three libraries over the next four years.
