Ler Não Custa Nada, Valongo


Project created with the aim of promoting a taste for reading and books among employees of the Municipality of Valongo, through the provision of free books in the municipal spaces.
This initiative also intends to make reading part of an employee’s day-to-day.
Contribute to cognitive well-being, development of creativity, communication, imagination and critical thinking.
The employee will have at his disposal some books among which he can choose the one that suits him the most, being able to enjoy reading a book during his work breaks (for example, lunch time).
The book should not leave the space and/or equipment where it is located so as not to lose it.
The books will be changed monthly in order to allow a fluidity of titles.
