Everybody within the borders of Croatia can read for free on the application Croatia Reads. Entrance to the virtual library is free for everyone while they are in Croatia.
Welcome to Croatia, an open digital library
The first country in the world that is a completely free reading zone – so it is written on the Croatia Reads on Facebook page. Croatia Reads is a project by the Free Reading Zones initiative, which supports free access to books and knowledge around the world. So what do you have to do? All that is required of you is to download the free app “Croatia Reads” for Android or iOS smartphones and tablets, sign up, and read anytime and anywhere within Croatia.
The project Free Reading Zones was first introduced in early autumn when the Velvet Café in Zagreb became the first free reading zone in Croatia, becoming somewhat of a pilot for the project. Today, with the launch of the application, Croatia has become a country where a revolution has erupted in the form of books; the first time that a free library, rich with international bestsellers and academic books, has become available to all people within a state.
