About EURead

Founded in 2000, EURead is a consortium of European reading promotion organisations who believe that reading is a prerequisite for full participation in today’s media-led and culturally diverse society. The aim of this leading network is to exchange knowledge, experiences and concepts, and to jointly develop new strategies for the promotion of reading.

The Global Network for Bookgifting

Managed by EURead, a global network of early childhood programmes providing free books and reading guidance to promote shared reading. The goal of the network is to strengthen existing bookgifting programmes and help organisations install new ones.
