We think kids need books. Good books with spectacular illustrations. Books about kids who look, live, and speak like them. So we designed an approach that enables communities to build digital libraries in their own languages.
The Let's Read! initiative draws on The Asia Foundation's in-country capabilities, local partnerships, and technological expertise to empower communities to create, translate, and share high-quality, richly illustrated children's books. Let’s Read’s multi-lingual, digital collection and community-driven strategy are designed to spark a lifelong love of reading throughout Asia.
Let's Read! is more than a digital library—it is a quick and cost effective approach to solving the problem of book scarcity in local languages and in remote or underserved communities. Our digital library website and app - fueled by workshops that create and translate books in local languages - put stories directly into the hands of children, parents, teachers, and communities. All of the books in the Let's Read! library carry a Creative Commons license, which allows them to be read, downloaded, printed, and shared with very few restrictions.
