By Roberta Campassi

Fundação Biblioteca Nacional (FBN), the government institution responsible for reading politics and public libraries in Brazil, will invest a total of R$211 million this year in programs. This will include the construction of 340 new libraries, the renovation of collections in 5,000 libraries and translation funding for international publishing houses interested in translating Brazilian authors, among others. The budget is almost twice the R$100 million invested in 2010.
