SIQUEIRA, Thiago Giordano de Souza. Reading, library and social inclusion: The importance of promoting reading in riverside communities in Amazonas, Brazil. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2016, n.34, pp.93-106. ISSN 1851-1740.

Reading is a key factor for life in society, yet there are people who have not appropriated this habit. This theme has been the focus of various research and academic and scientific events, always with the intention of making it accessible to all. Brazil is known for its huge extension, but suffers from inefficiency in the implementation of this type of projects. The State of Amazonas occupies the largest land area of the country; in addition, the river transport is the only way to access to many communities. The article describes developed activities with the intention of bringing the reading to the riverside communities in an attempt to democratize access to books and reading in the absence of public libraries, contributing to the process of informational inclusion in the current society of information and knowledge where the issue of reading is a challenge even if it is an essential condition, there are illiterate people who need to be included in order to guarantee their participation as citizens.

Palabras clave : Reading Promotion; Social inclusion; Riverside communities; Amazonas (Brazil).
