| Project Open Library

Either we wage a dispute of ideas in the contemporary society that favours the progress of Freedom now and in future generations, or the reverse. Instituto Liberdade has a commitment to divulge knowledge and is offering to academics, civil society and specially the young students, the best that the Western Classic Liberalism civilization created in literature, economics, politics, history and philosophy. The state of Rio Grande do Sul has a strong authoritarian heritage. Hence, the state still keeps traces of a culture that disbelieve the initiative and independence of individuals and of civil society, and favours the patronizing action of the State. Based upon this culture, myths are created that harm the development of the State. The project “Open Library” has a simple and direct focus:  to offer a collection of the most significant books published in Brazil (from the Libertarian perspective) to the public, university and community libraries in the state. 


To distribute a collection of 145 works in history, economics, politics and philosophy, among the main published titles in Brazil, representing, latu sensu, the contemporary Libertarian thinking, to 80 public and community libraries, in major cities of the state of Rio Grande do Sul.

Introduction to the Rouanet Act:

The Federal Act to Incentive Culture 8313/91, known as Rouanet Act, created the National Program to Support Culture - PRONAC, and one of its objectives is to bolster cultural and artistic activities. Since sponsorship is one of the tools utilized by individuals and companies for tax deductions, many investments have been made for culture projects approved by the Cultural Ministry. It is important to observe that by using this kind of incentive, the donors are not involved in any bureaucratic procedure because the government is the sole responsible in formatting, executing and rendering expenses. More information at the government’s website:  www.cultura.gov.br
