With activities to promote reading, Merida will be part of the Librobus tour through the southeast of the country. It is an expandable truck that transforms into a bookstore, with capacity to receive groups of 10 people, who will have access to the four thousand copies it houses.

With these activities, the Mérida City Hall, headed by Mayor Renán Barrera Concha, adds to the promotion of reading and cultural initiatives that enrich the integral development of children, young people and adults, and fosters a culture of peace.

According to a press release, the Reading Promotion Tour began on September 18 and will end on October 20, taking its literary cargo through southeastern Mexico. The Librobús will travel to 13 locations in Tabasco, such as Villahermosa, Centla and Macuspana; 11 in Campeche, including Xpujil, Escárcega and Calkiní; 11 in Quintana Roo, including Bacalar, Tulum and Cozumel, among others, and 5 in Yucatán, such as Mérida, Kanasín and Panabá.

The collection offered by the Librobús includes literature for children and young people, both from Fondo de Cultura Económica (FCE) and Educal, who promote the activity, as well as from other public and private publishing houses.

The tour seeks to encourage the creation of reading communities and to promote, together with educational institutions and groups, cultural activities around the presence of the Librobús.
