In response to the waves of refugees from Africa and the Middle East arriving to the Italian island, Lampedusa, the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY), launched the project “Silent Books, from the world to Lampedusa and back” in 2012. The project involved creating the first library on Lampedusa to be used by local and immigrant children and annual Silent Book lists and exhibits that travel the globe.
