Libraries are temples of learning. It holds the resources that one can take great benefits from. Realising that many people in the village never had a chance at education, the children of 626 No Jyoti Patshala in Assam (Bharti Foundation’s partner government school under Satya Bharti Quality Support Program) thought of starting a community library. Through the initiative, they wanted to give the villagers free access to a variety of books, and also raise awareness about the importance of education.
With support from the head master, teachers and community members, the children went door to door to raise resources to build the library. They also encouraged villagers to contribute books to the library for public use. To ensure that the library functions in order, a community member volunteered to be the library in-charge.
So far, more than 600 people in the village have benefited from the community library.
