Islamabad, September 8, 2015 - USAID Deputy Mission Director Cathy Moore celebrated the launch of four new mobile libraries provided through the Pakistan Reading Project at a government secondary school in Islamabad today as part of International Literacy Day, a global effort to encourage reading and education.  The new buses will bring reading materials to more than 300 communities across Pakistan, reaching more than 2,500 students in 100 primary schools in Islamabad alone, and many more in rural parts of the nation which may not have traditional library resources.  The buses will also be staffed by trained librarians, who will conduct storytelling sessions for children and young adults, and talk to older patrons about library services and the importance of literacy.
