The Slovene Reading Association was established in 1995 with the motto "to promote reading is to promote knowledge and a more meaningful life". It is the foremost association in Slovenia that joins professionals in a range of disciplines in a common effort to promote reading culture, that is, pedagogues, librarians, psychologists, editors and other experts.

By way of organising events such as round tables, discussions, lectures, they strive to raise awareness of the importance of reading, as well as provide support and training to individuals involved in the teaching and research of reading. The association holds a biennial professional conference on 8 September, International Literacy Day, and publishes the conference proceedings. Past conferences and round table discussions focused on topics such as the Role of Visual Elements in Communication, the Development of Reading and Literacy in Schools, Developing Reading Competence.

The Slovene Reading Association has three subsidiary associations: in the Dolenjska, Primorska, and Celje regions. It is affiliated with the US-based International Reading Association (IRA), its International Development in Europe Committee (IDEC), and the Federation of European Literacy Associations (FELA). The Slovene Reading Association is part of European campaign Europe reads (EuReads) and one of the organisers of the national month of joint reading which goal is to raise reading culture and reading literacy in Slovenia.
