Literacy and Information Support Unit

The Literacy and Information Support Unit (LISU) supports primary, middle, and secondary state schools in both the technical and the curricular aspect of libraries. School libraries are being supported through the provision of a number of books and resources. This Unit, in collaboration with the National Book Council and the Department of Curriculum Management, organises a yearly Reading Champions award ceremony as part of a nationwide campaign for the promotion of reading. The main objective of this initiative is to give recognition not only to those students who are proficient readers in Maltese and English, but also to those who have made an effort to improve their reading skills, as well as those pupils who promote reading. During the ceremony Form 2 middle/secondary students from state, church, and independent schools are given a prize after being nominated for their efforts by their own teachers/librarians.
