Partir en livre is a nationally recognized system, certified by the National Book Center, which raises awareness among young people about the pleasure of reading.

The animation has four objectives:

– Transmit the pleasure of reading
– Create new readers
– Supporting players in the book world
– Show that the book can be a shared joy

– Two operations in two different places –

From July 9 to 13, Partir en Livre – Livr’anlèr will be in the town of Saint-Joseph in Langevin at the fitness trail, for activities in partnership with the Sud Sauvage media library.
