IMPROVING COMMUNITY LITERATION THROUGH READING CORNER
Based on the survey released by the UNESCO in 2017, Indonesia was ranked 60th out of 61 countries on reading interest. This result is in line with the findings of the preliminary survey conducted by a community dedication team in South Meruya district. They find that reading interest in the area is very low indicated by the number of books read. The low reading interest could cause a negative impact, especially in a digital era where any information can be accessed through social media. Unfortunately, such information cannot be justified and is more often to provoke and causing chaos. Therefore, community service is held in Meruya Selatan district in order to increase the community literacy. The purpose is done by making a reading corner which aims to provide the community access to interesting and useful reading materials to increase reading interest and knowledge to create a high-quality community life.
