Encourage reading

One of the most important aims of libraries is to encourage reading. Helping children gain fundamental reading skills and introducing them to the inspiring world of literature helps create conscious, informed and culturally rich communities.

What our customers say

At Globus Food Festival we filled up our library bike with books and performed searches and loans with just an iPad. It was great fun, and something we haven't had the opportunity to do before. Being able to have the library with us out in the districts or institutions and have full access to the library service platform through the cloud is worth a million.

Geirr Karlsen, Head of Section for Library Development Drammen Public Library

The range of books is limited in some schools outside the central areas. We wanted to increase especially the reading comprehension of our students, and with WeLib we will be able to increase the accessibility to literature and also be able to personalize using the technology.
