District level awareness programme for rural library


KIPHIRE: Kiphire district cultural office organised “district level awareness programme for rural library” at Agape hall with EAC Ane Khieya as special guest, here on Saturday.
Speaking at the inaugural programme, EAC emphasised on the importance of library for rural areas.
While stating that libraries helped people come together, think, discuss and reflect, she said that they also act as a resource for the resources-less people and were essential institutions in every society.
She added that Kiphire being an aspirational district required public library which could bring people together for progressive growth.
In this regard, Ane Khieya said public library digital classrooms were to be setup in few selected schools in the district under the aspirations programme.
There is no resource like the library and investing in this resource will not only help the public but also the student community, she stated.
The EAC also asked the participants to inculcate reading as a hobby which would not only help them learn but also help them become a well-informed person.
Further, she encouraged the participants to disseminate what they had learned at the awareness programme as they go back to their respective villagers.
In his keynote address, DCO P. Yongwe Wumnok highlighted the activities of the department and informed that the government had many schemes, provided, the rural library function well for at least three-five years.
He disclosed that there were 29 libraries registered in the district and the department was providing books to performing libraries.
In the technical session, assistant professor & library supervisor ZPC, Vanthungo Jami and assistant professor ZPC, Temjentoshi Ozukum talked on the topic “traditional library & digital library pros and cons” and “organisational and management of public library”.
