At the initiative of children’s writers and authors gathered around Bookland, company Beo Čista Energija, which manages the Vinča Resource Recovery Center, donated 50 books to the library of the Karadjordje elementary school in Ostružnica, one of the oldest Serbian school.
Children’s writers, such as Ljubivoje Ršumović, Pero Zubac, Gradimir Stojković, Mošo Odalović, Vesna Aleksić, Slobodan Stanišić, Milutin Đuričković, Boško Lomović, together with the Institute for Children’s Literature, launched an action to encourage reading habits in children and the youth, and develop good reading taste.
