Book Box Libraries in action!

ZLS visited those schools with new book box libraries last week to see how they were getting on with using these libraries with their students and teachers. All 5 schools have made great progress - all the books have been processed properly to make it easier for students to find and borrow the books they need, many have been running regular storytelling sessions, teachers have been borrowing the book box to use for class reading lessons, and at Chumbuni Primary School, the teacher-librarians have promoted the book box library so well that their book box is nearly empty as most of the books are out on loan.

The students are loving having Swahili story books to read and all the teacher-librarians are already asking for more books for their book box libraries...
