Dutch Reading Promotion

The Dutch Art of Reading program supports reading aloud, free voluntary reading, and information literacy for children. Strategies include BookStart, the Public Library at school, and strategic reading promotion networks. Public libraries work with various organizations and agencies. The Dutch Reading Foundation and the National Library oversee the initiatives.

BookStart promotes early reading, story telling, and family reading experiences. The National Reading Coalition  is especially interested in combatting illiteracy, and Dutch ministries are addressing language issues.

The Public Library at school professionalizes reading approaches through long term collaboration in developing policies, collections, portal, and activities.This program is showing their impact through digital monitoring. Data may be viewed at several levels: from national down to classroom.
