Haiti - Culture : First online digital library of Haitian authors
Pradel Henriquez, the Minister of Culture welcomes the creation of the online digital library initiated by the Griyo Cultural Association "This initiative, exclusively dedicated to Haitian writers, aims to bring books and authors closer to readers, in particular, those who do not have access to a library. It is an opportunity for young people to devote themselves to reading during this period of confinement."

The website www.griyo.net offers visitors 156 Haitian authors, 317 books and 66 audio divided into 10 categories "a click, thanks to a smartphone, reading is at hand," said Minister Henriquez who dreams of seeing a day the National Library, the National Book Directorate and the Centers for Reading and Cultural Animation (CLAC) migrate to digital in order to facilitate access to books for the general population and young people in particular.

The objective is to make the work of Haitian authors more accessible, especially to young Haitians who do not have access to libraries, who have no money to afford books but who by modernity, often own or use a smartphone, computer or digital tablet.

The online library of Haitian authors includes works that are in the public domain or available for free download on other platforms, as well as books authorized by their authors.
