Quoting from Indonesian Reading Ambassador, Najwa Shihab, “The importance of reading, in addition to increasing knowledge, it also stimulate our mind to keep it open. Reading is not just seeing words, but getting meaning from what you read. when we read more, we will grow to understand various things (“the universe”) and certainly, we won’t become “superficial minded” people “.

Because of the importance of reading, this culture must be nurtured and improved. Just like what was done by SMA Negeri 1 Gresik, in order to increase knowledge about the Library and providing motivation to read, Yesterday (25/03) 40 students who are also reading ambassadors of Camusa SMA Negeri 1 Gresik visited the ITS Library.

Hopefully, it will give spirit to the students to read more, and the enthusiasm to pursue their dreams. “Said Edy Suprayitno as Head of ITS Library when delivering his speech.
