Abstract

Let's Read Together for 10 Minutes

‘Let’s Read Together for 10 Minutes’ is an annual event that is organized by the Selangor Public Library Corporation with collaboration from the other state libraries and government agencies in Malaysia. Inspired by the Earth Hour concept, this programme is a symbolic honour to the World Book and Copyright Day, involving participants in the whole country reading simultaneously within the allotted ten minutes time. 2.5 million people from all walks of life took part in the event during its first initiation in 2014, followed by 2.542 million in 2015. Selangor alone contributed approximately a quarter of the figures for both years. In the perpetual crusade to inculcate a reading society, the Selangor Public Library Corporation is looking forward to future prospects with great enthusiasm and dedication.
