“I feel the need of reading, it is a loss to a man not to have grown up among books”
Abraham Lincoln

Libraries for Children are essential for development. It is in childhood that all kinds of literacy skills are best built. Early childhood literacy is important: the earlier a child starts to access information, the more efficient and life-long this access will be. Libraries for Children are the key to equal possibilities for all to access information.

The libraries equip children with lifelong learning and literacy skills, enabling them to participate and contribute to the community. Children’s libraries have a special responsibility to support the process of learning to read and to give children access to all media. They empower children and advocate for their freedom and safety. They encourage children to grow into confident and competent adults. They give children their first experience of being a citizen in their own right.

The clubs were a concept that developed out of a large number of children interested in learning through reading, interactive play, drama, storytelling, debate, games, and other media that are able to hold children’s attention. The clubs are anchored on two pillars of activities, i.e. Indoor and outdoor activities.
