The Reading Society is one of the oldest cultural institutions in modern Greece, founded by young university alumni in 1836 on the model of the Geneva society of the same name. Its membership has included many distinguished personalities in letters, arts, sciences and politics. The society has gradually collected a substantial library, mainly of Ionian interest, that is open to visitors. It organizes various activities focusing mostly on the preservation and promotion of the culture of the Ionian islands.
