Bilan de animatrice Salimata Korbeogo dans le Bam, bibliothèques Burkina Faso

Bilan de la semaine du 5 au 10 février 2018
Le lundi 5 février 2018 je fus à Mane pour objectif entretenir avec le CCEB sur le choix de l’école pour la bibliothèque ambulante, et l’inventaire des livres. Il était absent, quand je suis arrivé à la CEB, mais j’ai pu voir le secrétaire pour prendre son contact. Ensuite je suis allé à la bibliothèque pour l’inventaire. Le bilan de cet inventaire est le suivant : 13 perdu, 18 en retard 49 sans retard, 530 présent a la bibliothèque.

La bibliothèque ambulante de Sabce a eu lieu le mercredi 07 Février 2018 à l’école primaire publique de NOH. Un village a une dizaine de kilomètre de Sabce. Plus de 200 livres pour enfants ont été déplacé pour aller montré aux enfants de la dite école. Plus de 320 enfants ont pris part à la séance.

A Rouko la même activité a été menée le vendredi 09 Février 2018 à l’école primaire publique de Silmidougou située à 7 kilomètre de Rouko. En plus les livres pour enfants une dizaine de roman pour adultes ont aussi apportés pour que les enseignants de la dite école puissent faire la connaissance… Je dis que l’objectif des activités a été atteint, les semaines à venir, elle sera adaptée dans les autres communes. Il a eu aussi la bonne collaboration des différents enseignants. Je note également la présence de l’animatrice de CRS des deux communes.

La visite guidée à Tikare a eu lieu le Samedi 10 février 2018. Une classe de Cm1 de l’école de Wedkingo située a 4km de la ville. 38 enfants ont répondu présent, 18 filles et 20 garçons.

Visit to the Upper East Regional library

Paul Ayutoliya, FAVL CESRUD Ghana coordinator, reports:
IMG_20180208_135848I paid a visit to the Upper East Regional library today. The visit was for me to find out the current state of the regional library in terms of the library  performance and  to also update the regional librarian Mr. Leslie Kasanga on happenings at the Ghana libraries.  Mr. Kasanga welcomed me to the library and was happy for the visit and said attendance to the regional library has lately been very encouraging. The problems still remains Government inability to provide the library with enough  funds for their activities and  fuel to fuel the library van to go to Accra and bring the books that have been allocated to the regional library. He touched on a number of outreach programs he has planned to carry out which will benefit the library users but unable to do so due to lack of funding.  I briefed Mr.  Kasanga on recent happenings in our libraries; patronage has been good, activities so far have been good.  I touched also on CESRUD partnering with Biblionef Ghana in providing books for 20 basic Schools in West B circuit all in Sumbrungu. Mr. Kasanga was happy that CESRUD have been able to help in expanding the community libraries to the basic schools. I hinted we are likely  to invite him to our libraries during this year vacation classes periods to observe what we normally do and perhaps add his input. He said he will be ready to honour such invitation.

Biblionef Ghana supporting FAVL libraries and school libraries in Bolgatanga area

Paul Ayutoliya, FAVL-CESRUD library coordinator writes:

Rex Asanga, Cesrud Director, was able to get support from an NGO called Biblionef Ghana. Biblionef Ghana was able to support 20 basics (Primary and Junior High) schools in Sumbrungu West B circuit with donation of story books for pupils and small shelves to stock the books. Selected teachers from the 20 schools were taken through a two days training by official of Biblionef who came from Accra on how to manage their school libraries, I took part in that training, Mr. Rex have asked that as I tour those basic schools with the libraries, whatever support or technical assistance they need that I able to support I should do so. I am hopeful this year that there is going to be more collaboration with teachers of the beneficiary school to help the young ones enjoy reading. Let me note that the school libraries only operate during school hours, during the night session many of the patrons from far who have develop interest for reading do join their peers at the Sumbrungu Community Library for reading and/ or learning.

Officials from Biblionef Ghana as part of the training workshop visited some the schools and interacted with pupils and teachers, they also paid a visit to the Sumbrungu Community Library with Mr. Rex. They were very impressed with the materials they saw stock in the library for users. They expressed their appreciations to the FAVL for the laudable initiative and promised to get the library either two desktop computers or laptops and other reading materials when they return this year in March to visit the school libraries and assess how the libraries are functioning.
