Prime Scholars School Library, Nigeria

Since the library was opened to the students, we have observed that many of our students enjoy reading storybooks and novels for leisure. They are also broadening their vocabulary and their knowledge of the world. This exciting development will no doubt enable them develop a habit of reading to educate themselves. It also inculcates the idea of having to use the library as a resource centre for learning.

Putting a book in the hands of a child in Africa puts a smile on their face, knowledge in their mind and hope of a brighter future in their soul. It's the least expensive but most important gift you could ever give.
