Pick up a book to read

Bigastro City Council has joined the international initiative to promote reading called "Book Crossing", with the aim of taking the books to the street so that the municipality becomes a large library.

The mayor, Teresa Belmonte, visited different public places where "little houses" of books have been installed.

The places where you can find them are the Health Centre, EI La Paz, CEP San Jose de Calasanz, IES Miguel Hernandez and there is a "little house" outdoors, in the Huerto del Cura Park.

The boxes that have been installed have been decorated by the students of the centres and in the case of the Health Centre box it has been covered with a unique design of the Bigastro hook group, as well as the Reading Club that uses the design of the Association of People with Disabilities "La Pedrera".

The idea is that bigastrenses have available books of all kinds of narratives so that they can pick them up, read them and even take them to other cities where they travel, because this project is of an international nature.
