The Ministry of Culture and Civil Society held a book exhibition under the slogan “Read and Take the Book Home” on Monday in Martyrs Square, Tripoli, in the presence of booklovers and civil society entities.

During the exhibition, more than a hundred book titles were displayed and almost a thousand Ministry-published and other varieties of books were distributed to visitors free.

“We warmly welcome such a motivational idea, and we strongly encourage repeating such an initiative, which help the book be close to the reader once again.” Said a group of visitors.

Meanwhile, this exhibition comes as one part of the Ministry’s plan to make August 10 of every year an annual event to celebrate the Arabic book as well as to encourage people to read more and to step up the cultural tendencies in the city.
