Objective: To enhance a reading culture and increase the chance of educational success for our students.
In March 2008, we established what we believe may be the first lending library for children in all of Dagoretti and certainly the only one to which the children in our program have access.
- We have about 2,000 books, plus an additional 300+ books in three Kindles.
- The library is open every day during school holidays, every Saturday and on weekdays by appointment or as appropriate and possible for our partner schools and children in the program.
- Our books are shelved in Early Readers, Fiction, Nonfiction by category.
- In addition to books, we are building a DVD and books on CD section.
Studies have shown that the more children read, the better they will do in all of their coursework. We are proud of this wonderful asset and are pleased that approximately 150 books are checked out at any point in time.
