Library - Gujarat

PROJECT DETAILS

The school library is integral to the teaching and learning process. The school library facilitates the work of the classroom teacher and ensures each student has equitable access to resources, irrespective of home opportunities or constraints. Books being the number one source of knowledge are often the key to literacy. It is even said that a man is what he reads and thus, having a library in the school helps us mold the kids in a much better way. Books and hence, libraries keep the kids grounded, well-read, knowledgeable and eager to learn more. While the role of the school library remains constant, its design, digital platform, strategies and tools change as pedagogy and technology changes. Room To Read in collaboration with Adani CSR has initiated setting up interactive libraries in schools of Gujarat. The aim of the initiative is to develop literacy skills and enhance reading ability among the children.
