Strengthening of Library (Defunct to Vibrant)

Case Study (22-October-2020)

Himmotthan believes in the power of stories and strives to make reading for pleasure a part of every childhood. We believe reading can change lives, especially for first generation learners and children with no print or literate environment at home. Himmotthan Library Program is running successfully in Primary school, Bajuniyahaldu, Kotabagh now but when we have started implementing our program we have faced several roadblocks like no session designated to library, library treated as extracurricular activities and the libraries doesn’t have age appropriate story books. Seeing all these difficulties Himmotthan has gradually initiated the strengthening processes of library.

Functional Community Library

First of all, we have trained all the teachers of school in pedagogy of library by introducing them to different techniques like Read aloud, Book Talk, Treasure Hunt and various art and crafts activities related to libraries so that teachers develop their interest in reading and pass them on the children. After this we have expanded the availability of resources by providing high quality, diverse children’s literature to the school and also equipped school by providing infrastructure to keep the books safe and open for all the children. This led to a collective interest among children, parents, SMC members, Community and teachers. Once an almost defunct Library has come into a vibrant place within a span of 8 months thanks to the teachers, children and their parents.
