Lines of action. Books, Literature and the Arts

The lines of action carried out by the Office for the Promotion of Spanish Books, Reading and Literature are divided into three broad groups:

  • Promoting Books: Salto de líneaBy providing access to the Spanish book and publisher databases of the Spanish ISBN Agency, which it owns, but which has been managed by the Spanish Federation of Publishing Associations since 23 December 2010.
  • Promoting Reading: Salto de líneaThrough reading promotion and encouragement campaigns; developing programmes for children and young people to encourage reading habits; subsidies for promotion of reading initiatives and donating books and magazines to public libraries and other institutions.
  • Promoting Spanish Literature: Salto de líneaBy granting National Awards to the most outstanding Spanish authors and their works; fostering literary activities at secondary schools and universities; developing programmes to introduce young readers to the classics and commemorating the centenaries of the great writers.
