As from February 2021, the Read at Home scheme has been extended and is now offering all Primary, Middle, and Secondary school students the opportunity to borrow and enjoy reading books at home.
The Read at Home scheme helps students to find comfort in books during these difficult times brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Every student can borrow up to six books, three in Maltese and three in English from age-appropriate catalogues. Books are delivered to their doorstep free of charge.
During its first three months, 499 students benefitted from the scheme, borrowing 4,230 books in Maltese and English.
The Read at Home application form and catalogue of books are available on: https://education.gov.mt/en/nationalliteracyagency/Pages/Programmes/Aqra-Kemm-Tiflah.aspx
