I paid a visit yesterday (July 2) to the Gowrie-Kunkua Community Library for supervision. Few library users were in the library the time I arrived there. More library users came on later to the library after they have closed school. The numbers of patrons were many to the point that we (the librarian and I) have to divide them in groups of three and read with them story books at some point and listen to storytelling. Other patrons who came earlier read different story books such as the Read and Reply Stories by Michael Y. Mensah, Teen Princess by Diana B. Mcbangonluri, Odikro on Trial by Duke Peprah among other story books. The children and young adults in the Gowrie-Kunkua community are lovers of books, they have so developed interest in reading that any time they are in the library each patron will be seen busy with a book reading. Parents of late are also encouraging the wards to always go to the library and read books, some parents will normally follow up on their wards to the Library to see how they are doing. Yesterday,one woman came over to the library with the child to see what the children were doing. She was so happy to see children reading story books alongside with me. She picked up a book also and flipped some pages (looking at the photos) before leaving for the day. She was grateful for the support which is greatly impacting on the lives of the children. Most parents now recognized the fact that books have the power to transform lives hence their efforts to see their children come to the library. I was very much encouraged of the attendance to the library yesterday.
