Product Description

More than 50% of the children in Grade 5 in India cannot read at Grade 2 level 1. Children from rural areas and low-income environments have little access to books. The library in school then becomes their sole resource for reading material. Thinksharp Foundation believe that giving access to a wide variety of books will help to foster positive reading habits and attitudes among children. We set up a library in schools with poem, story, environment, science and general knowledge books, etc. to encourage and sustain a reading habit among children.Our modular library that hangs on the wall, the contains 50 to 60 of richly illustrated children’s books.

The library in school then becomes their sole resource for reading material. Thinksharp Foundation belief by giving access to a wide variety of books will help to foster positive reading habits and attitudes among children. We set up a library in schools with poem, story, environment, science and general knowledge books, etc. to encourage and sustain a reading habit among children.
Our modular library that hangs on the wall, the contains 50 to 60 of richly illustrated children’s books. Children enjoy invaluable physical proximity to printed books, which in turn encourages them to read and develop emotionally and intellectually. Instead of by age, our books are categorized according to Reading Levels 1 – 4, ranging from Emergent to Fluent. The unique format of the library kits invites children to freely interact with storybooks that are attractively displayed on the wall instead of locked up in a cupboard. We also encourage students to fill book review which includes their learning from the book they read.
To set up a Library in school, we install minimum 4 to 6 library kits (Each kit contains 50 to 60 books). One library kit costs INR 8750, which includes logistics, training, yearly visit to school, book review forms, photos and videos and feedback from teachers/students.
