Vista Library, the first ever Read with Me library, is located in one of the most deprived regions of Qom province. It was established in memory of Ali Rashtizadeh by his family. It started off in Fakhri Art School and was relocated to Fahmideh Elementary School in February 2020.
The library contains near 500 titles and a total of 1000 books. Since it has been the first library of the region to consider children and young adult needs, it has been very well-received by children and their families.
The library space is vast, with a colorful child-centered design and a rich literacy environment.
Read-aloud sessions, plays and artistic activities are among the activities in this library. “Vista Ambassadors” is the most important project currently in progress. Through this project, enthusiastic children and young adults are selected and given an “Ambassador Card”. These ambassadors are students from different schools. They borrow books from the library and read-aloud in their classrooms. This project has connected many students and schools to Vista Library.
