Most schools in this country have a school library that provides textbooks and reading materials. Access to reading material is a matter of course for us. If the book you want is not available, there is an interlibrary loan or another library nearby.
At Ilkeek Aare Primary School, however, the situation is different. In Kenya, schoolbooks have to be purchased by the parents. However, many are not financially able to do so.
A school library gives all students access to the reading materials they need. In addition, a well-furnished and equipped library is always a place that invites people to read. A retreat, a place of imagination and research.
