The Brazilian National Library―which is the 8th largest in the world―is taking some interesting actions to promote the national literature.
One of them is facilitating the translation of Brazilian authors into English and Spanish. Another great effort is opening up libraries at the country's international borders with South American neighbors. There's also the International Book Center (Centro Internacional do Livro) that will implement some strategies to attract investments and buyers for the domestic book market.
Galeno Amorin, President of the National Library Foundation (FBN ― Fundação Biblioteca Nacional) says these efforts are crucial because literature is a very efficient way to take a plunge into the culture of a country.
