Great story about new library reading room in Sumbrungu, Ghana, supported by CESRUD and FAVL

This, it said, could be achieved through the establishment of community and school libraries in various communities and schools to make the available conducive environment and relevant books for children to read.

According to the organization, this would help imbibe reading habits among children especially those at the basic level and contribute to improve performance in school.

Mr Rex Asanga, the Executive Director of CESRUD, made the call at the commissioning of an extended reading hall at the Sumbrungu Community Library in the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region.

The expansion work was supported financially by the Amsterdam Bolgatanga Foundation, an NGO based in the Netherlands, and the Friends of African Village Libraries (FAVL), an American charity organization.

The Sumbrungu Community Library, established in 2003, is part of three community libraries established by CESRUD in collaboration with FAVL.
