Oaks View International College, Nigeria

Since the assembly of the library the students have made the library their favourite place in the school which is an exciting prospect as one of the big goals of the school is to open the minds of the students through helping them to make reading a habit. The total book count was 1032 books. Many of the books were fictional leisure reading which is ideal for many of the students as they are much easier reading.
