The end of the school year is here and the libraries of Mijas present their traditional Reading Campaign 'In summer, don't stop reading'. This initiative is in its 22nd edition and is aimed at children between 6 and 14 years old. 'Refresh yourself with Culture' is the theme chosen this time for the campaign, because as well as encouraging children to read during their well-deserved holidays, they are invited to get to know the cultural spaces in the municipality. 

"We are very excited and we are looking forward to making the campaign take root in the municipality, so that the children can enjoy reading and at the same time get to know the different cultural spaces in the municipality through this campaign", said the technician from the Libraries Department, Antonio Pino, during the presentation of the activity, that was also attended by the councillor for Culture, Juan Carlos Maldonado (PMP), the president of the Idiliq Foundation, Juan Miguel Marcos, who once again collaborates with the initiative, and the principal of the library of CEIP El Olmo, María del Carmen Ríos, who was also present on behalf of the educational community. 

"The Libraries Department does a magnificent job all year round in promoting reading, and an example of this is this campaign, which is now in its 22nd year. It is true that the summer season must be filled with content, the younger ones must also have fun and this initiative somehow encourages reading and, at the same time, gives them the opportunity to get to know our cultural spaces", said the councillor.

Maldonado thanked the libraries for their work and added: "we are enormously grateful to the educational community for their participation because otherwise this would not be possible, and to the Idiliq Foundation, which is present in practically all the activities of the Town Hall and in all the social life of the municipality, of course, it did not want to ignore the cultural sphere, which is so important in our municipality".

Reading habits

The aim of the campaign 'In summer, don't stop reading' is to encourage children to read during the holidays. The reading campaign will run from the 1st of July to the 30th of August and the number of books to be read by children will be 12. Participants will be given a reading diary adapted to their age, which can be collected at any of the four libraries in Mijas from the 1st to the 12th of July, inclusive. The notebooks should be handed in from the 26th to the 30th of August.

Discovering cultural areas

The children will be able to choose their readings from the books in the libraries of Mijas or the electronic books of the e-Biblio Andalucía platform. Each reader will be able to borrow a maximum of two books at a time from the library. For each book that participants read, they will receive a sticker of a cultural space that they can collect and paste in their notebook. The selfies that the children will be asked to take must be taken inside each of the museums, libraries, exhibition halls, theatres and botanical routes chosen, and must also be displayed in the notebooks.

Fun and adventure
As for the event that will be organised at the Idiliq Foundation's facilities for all participants and their families to celebrate the adventure of reading, it will be a fun day designed for the children. "The truth is that for us it is a joy to be able to sponsor this campaign every year, which, in addition, always gives very good results, because when you see the number of children who participate, it means a success", said Marcos. 

"From the educational community we consider it to be a very interesting campaign, in fact teachers always recommend for the summer that the children do a daily reading. We consider it very important that children read in the summer and that they can visit the library to choose the book they like best and complete their sticker book", added Ríos. 

In short, in summer, as well as enjoying the usual summer activities, it is also recommended that children always make time for reading.
