Why Young Readers Library

Young Readers Library  is a social enterprise created to spur the love for reading and creative writing for pleasure in children-help them develop the necessary reading and writing skill , creative and leadership skill to be the best they can be and solve problems.

With the numerous distractions existing, the interest in reading for pleasure, writing and creativity among children has greatly reduced. Today, children spend more of their time on electronic tablets, smart phones and video games. At Young Readers Library, we believe that creativity and imagination are natural gifts of childhood, which is why we encourage our children to read and create daily, through access to books, journals and our unique programs.

Reading and writing keeps children creative!

Both reading and writing build a foundation for children to become leaders among their peers. Through our competitions and programs, our children are encouraged to read, write, create and become positive role models.

Our On-going Program

In this section, you will find all our ongoing programs for the Library. We always have one activity for the kids all year round.

We organize competitions among schools and different individuals. Several Schools enter into the contest, and this has been a great benefit to the kids.

This a free event for families to develop children’s literacy in homes.

 

Parents and children come together to enjoy nice games around books and word.  This event is held every last Saturday of the month between 3-5pm.

 

Parents can also share and learn how raise children who read for pleasure and display leadership and problem skills.

The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 16 to read 30 books in 30 days during the long summer holiday.

Children’s reading skills can slide downwards during the summer holidays if they don’t have regular access to books and encouragement to read for pleasure. The annual Summer Reading Challenge helps get thousands of children reading for pleasure each year and maintain or upgrade their reading skills and confidence.

How it works

Children read 30 Books  for 30 days divided into a minimum of,

5 Non-fiction Books

5 Indigenous Books (local languages)

5 Books by local Authors

Plus any other book of their choice.

There is a certificate for everyone who completes the Challenge and special awards for outstanding participants.
