I have looked at this pictures severally, asked my self a couple of questions without answers to all(infact I have shed tears equally cos the future of our kids are at stake here, the culture of reading books have gone extinct). When will I work into my country's National Library of this magnitude?
What are our plans towards Books and getting them into the hands and minds of the younger generation(not just classroom education)? Are our priorities set right towards Excellence? As Parents, As teachers, As Citizens? How many schools have befitting Libraries and are been made use of today, let alone state Libraries?(@lagosstategovt @gtb are uplifting the faces of some libraries in #lagos, thumbs up!) What of the rest of the 35?
How many Books have you bought and read(for yourself and to the children)? Books are not meant for decorations, or for the book shelves alone,they are meant to be read and referred to every now and then.
Support and Set up Book clubs. Encourage kids to attend book clubs around them, even if they don't read at home, in book clubs, books are read and discussed. Mum and Dad should attend book clubs too. @thebookwormcafeng @booknooklagos @tams_ink @readabookgetanaira @tabithaskids @rovingheights @bookclubs.com.ng @that_portharcout_boy
The riches and love that comes with Books will help build our LIBRARIES.
A Nation that does not READ can Never GROW
Let us set our priorities Right.
Together we can change the destiny of the younger generation (our children; including the underprivileged children and their own children). #readabokgetanaira #revamplibraries #library #books #supportruralbookclubs #supportunderprivilegedkids #buildlibraries #bookclubs #kidsbookclubs #passionateaboutbooks #raisingleaders #childrenslibrary #readforpleasure #nigerialibrary #librarylove #africanlibrary #africanbooks #childrensbooks #kidlit #literature #history #science #art
