Report from Ghana libraries the first week of March

Paul Ayuretoliya writes: This is a brief update report about happenings at the three community libraries being supported by FAVL through CESRUD for the first week of March. Attendance to the respective community libraries for week one of March was very good and encouraging. Most basic pupils and a good number of Senior High Schools student who are home for vacation patronized the respective libraries and read story books, studied notes taken from schools, practiced mathematics, and read their courses text books among others activities. Interacting with the patrons, I was told the libraries are conducive environment and places for attentive reading and focused learning. At the Sumbrungu community library, attendance for week one of March was quite impressive, some of the patrons in the course of the week read story books from the library while others studied. At the Sherigu community library, attendances to the library were also good for the first week of March. Patrons who visited the library also read  story books from the library, read their notes from school and worked on their assignments. The librarian was at post ensuring that everything worked well for an enjoyable and fun reading. The librarian was able to read few story books in group with patrons. The renovation works at the Gowrie-Kunkua library is steadily progressing and there will be more updates in a few days time.
