Muyuka School Library, Cameroon

The significance of books to the life of a student and to these students cannot be underestimated. The hundreds of students who never had a textbook to read from are now being able to go to the library and read from the variety of books donated. While the country coordinator for CEED Cameroon challenged the students to make use of the wealth of knowledge found in the books, the Principal also encouraged students to use the books and improve on their academics and urge teachers to make use of the library and enrich their curriculum.
