About Rakuten Mobile Library

The aim of the Mobile Library is to support reconstruction and promote education, but it has come to be quite a significant addition to the lives of adults and children alike in smaller communities. It has served as a place of entertainment for many people.

Reading helps children gain all sorts of knowledge and develop their imagination. Reading also boosts their ability to express themselves. By giving children more reading opportunities, children interact more with each other, exercising their communication skills. The Rakuten Mobile Library is contributing to children’s potential in many different ways.
