The Hellenic Book Club, with support from the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation, handed over seventy-five books to the library of the Primary School of Sperchogeia, Messenia. The books were accompanied by library organisation and management material as well as artworks, inspirational and decorative material that promotes the concept of reading. The Foundation had one more reason to support this initiative, given that it was at Sperchogeia that John F. Costopoulos was born in 1856 and spent his early years.

The Hellenic Book Club has been setting up Lending Libraries since 1977. After studying and evaluating the particular needs of each school and depending on what it lacks, the Club’s evaluation system selects the appropriate books whose quality ensures their high readability.
