IBBY Ethiopia is a new National Section (joined July 2023) of The International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) is a non-profit organization which represents an international network of people from all over the world who are committed to bringing books and children together. The Ethiopian National Section is building on the limited but growing activities focused on increasing access to quality books and creating a love of reading. It has a long history of oral story telling but limited children’s book publishing given economic and other challenges. Sharing quality books from Ethiopia will benefit both the children of Ethiopia as well as the children of the world. There is a new read aloud weekly program at the national library in the capital, as well as writers’ workshops for writers and illustrators with more planned.
