ABCD is establishing libraries in the primary schools of Marangu West complete with general reading books, textbooks, furniture and shelving. This year we will open our fifth library!
It is unusual to find libraries in the schools because the schools simply cannot afford them. Consequently, making full use of a library as a learning and activity centre is something the staff and students are not yet fully familiar with. One strategy which we have adopted this year to help ameliorate this unfamiliarity is to help in the founding of student library clubs.
At Makomu/Kyala PS the first library club has just formed and the students are excited to open the library regularly, keep it tidy and organized, encourage fellow students to use it and enjoy the books by borrowing them to read at home. Congratulations to this first school library club!
