Aqra d-Dar / Read at Home

The Aqra d-Dar/Read at Home scheme ensures that students aged 3 to 16 are provided with attractive and diverse books they can read at the comfort of their homes. ​ 

Through this scheme, all primary, middle and secondary students can borrow up to six books, three in Maltese and three in English to be chosen from age-appropriate catalogues available online. 
(Catologues of books found below)​
  • Books are delivered to their doorstep free of charge in an envelope.
  • Books can be kept up to a maximum of five weeks and are to be returned in the envelope that they were received in to one of our Book Return Boxes.
  • In Malta, the Book Return Box is located outside the National Literacy Agency Building on Joseph Abela Scolaro Street, Ħamrun, ĦMR 1304.
  • In Gozo, the Book Return Box is situated outside the Literacy Resource Centre Gozo College, Sannat Primary School and Special Unit, Ta' Sannat, Sannat Road, Sannat, SNT9020.
