Building a safe, child-friendly space
In many communities, the school library is the only place designed around the needs of children. It is vital that the library facilitates effective learning, socialization skills and play. Although our libraries come in all shapes and sizes, they share a few common traits, including educational puzzles and games, child-sized furniture, colorful, print-rich decorations and shelves full of local-language books.
Putting the library in place is only the first step. Once it’s complete, we work with school administration to ensure that children have ample time during school to explore the new resource and train teachers to effectively utilize the library materials to support the curriculum.
