In order to launch the Asia Foundation Project to donate English books to Vietnamese libraries in the period of 2017-2022 and to welcome the Asia Foundation Management Board in United States to visit and work in Vietnam, in the morning of January 30, 2018, the National Library of Viet Nam and the Asia Foundation have co-organized a number of reading encouragement activities aimed to promote the use of books which were funded under the signed agreement.
 

The Asian Foundation is a non-governmental organization of the United States working in the non-profit sector. With the aim of helping people in Asia-Pacific have more opportunities to access up-to-date educational resources in English from US publishers, the Asia Foundation has launched the program providing English books to libraries throughout Asia since 1954 and for Vietnam since 1993. With the permission of the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the National Library of Vietnam has become the focal point for the implementation of the English book project for Vietnamese libraries since 2000 with the number of books about 40,000 books per year.


The activities include: The Asia Foundation’s Book Exhibitions sponsors for Vietnamese libraries, storytelling activities, painting, quizzes, library experiences for pupils and tutorials about soft skills, career guidance for students.
