The State Public Library Ánxel Casal in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, is organising for the first time a Bibliomercado –word made of Library and Market- in a central location of the city, where the market is situated, on all Saturdays of September and October.
The aim of the initiative is to outreach to people at one of the main people concentration areas in the city, providing them with information on the library services and collections. This is part of a larger project, as the library will also be present in other places of the city, like Plaza Cervantes.
This action is part of a global context whose main objective is reading promotion in cooperation with the bookseller sector.
