The Book Festival Day reading advocacy campaign will open on August 6 at Tien Phong Primary School in Hanoi.

With the slogan "Let books light up children's dreams," the project aims to build self-managed libraries in classrooms for more than 8,000 primary and secondary school students in Ba Vi District's eight poorest communes: Tien Phong, Thai Hoa, Ba Trai, Ba Vi, Phu Son, Minh Chau, Khanh Thuong and Phu Dong.

The first phase of this project, which is co-organized and sponsored by Circle of Friends Youth Volunteer Organization (COF), with the support of Thang Long March Fund and Media Partner Youth Box Channel, will run until the end of 2013 at 16 primary and secondary schools in the communes.

For the first Book Festival Day (BFD) on Monday, the school's students will select and read books and take part in various group games. They will also sing and do art projects.

Through the BFD series, COF expects to bring about a vast range of books and magazines to poor children with the message, "There is a lot more to explore in the 'books of dreams,'" according to a press release from the organizers.
