Abstract
This paper presents how some national and international NGOs/NPOs contribute to increase literacy and lifelong reading habits among the Vietnamese, especially school goers, by supporting and promoting school and community library activities through building and renovating libraries, providing books and training librarians. Results show that respondent NGOs/NPOs built and renovated around 750 libraries; and provided the participating libraries, mostly school libraries, with over two million books and non-book materials.
