Abstract
Despite of having the world’s fourth largest population, Indonesia was categorized in the low level of Human Development Index (HDI) by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). Reading as one of the literacy indicator became one of the causes domain, the result of reading test in PIRLS 2011 at the elementary school, the most basic sub-level of public education, still denoted the 〖42〗^nd position of 45 countries. In fact, the literacy in Indonesia had been developed inadequately. Even though the government faced the result with Gerakan Literasi Sekolah(GLS) in 2016 as an official national solution, SDN Golo had previously initiated literacy programs in 2014. This paper result provided useful information for educators to plan a strategy in reading interest. Our analysis successfully explored the school efforts in fostering literacy through student engagement by conducting in-depth interviews, observations, and documentation. The school's strategy was engaging students in both structural and cultural programs of literacy.
