This is a proof of the very high appreciation from community towards literacy," said Head of the South Kalimantan Provincial Library and Archives Service Office, Nurliani, when opening the Webinar "The Joy of Reading Books" in collaboration with the National Library (Perpusnas), Friday (7/24). 

Furthermore, Nurliani said that the activity was a concrete manifestation of the South Kalimantan Provincial Library and Archives Service Office involvement to supports the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2020-2024 to form "Superior Human Resources for Advanced Indonesia" and the South Kalimantan Reading Movement which was announced by the Governor on March 31, 2017.
