HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism granted five mobile libraries to Sơn La, Quảng Nam, Gia Lai, Nghệ An and An Giang yesterday.

Each truck carries 10 Internet-connected computers, one projector, 3,000 books, teaching-aid tools and some books for sightless readers.

The project started in 2005 by targeting sightless people and students in remote areas. The mobile libraries bring knowledge and information to places which are difficult to access, said Vũ Dương Thúy Ngà, head of the ministry’s Library Department.

The first mobile libraries in Việt Nam were originally equipped for the Hà Nội Library, HCM City Library and Yên Bái provincial library. — VNS
