BREAD to fund Libraries at select Schools
To promote reading habit, the Basic Research Education and Development (BREAD), a voluntary organisation, has decided to establish libraries each valued at 20,000 at select Government schools in rural and urban areas in Andhra during current financial year.
The beneficiary schools should have six or more number of students who were qualified to receive National Means cum Merit Scholarship (NMMS) under a Central Government scheme.
BREAD chief coordinator Surreddy Sudhakar and project director Raavi Sarada said at a press conference here on 3rd April, 2011 that some poor students in Government schools had originality, which could be improved by introducing them to sound reading habits through school libraries.
Libraries were established at 140 schools all over the State and each library was equipped with one glass – door book case, 500 books (including 50 English books), book index and issue register.
Six such libraries were located in Krishna district, 26 in Guntur, 10 in East Godavari, five in Srikakulam, 21 in Chittoor, 14 in Kurnool, 17 in Vizianagaram, seven in Karimnagar, three in Rangareddy and one each in West Godavari and Prakasam districts.
