Taking the national pledge in the morning
Our first library, Nardy’s Library is located in Rosario, Diadi, Neuva Vizcaya. Established in December 2012, Nardy’s library reaches out to approximately 200 school-going children. It houses a collective 1300 books, ranging from pre-school fiction to adult fiction and non-fiction and encyclopedias. On average, 30 to 50 books are loaned out of the library per month. Additionally, with the help of three local volunteers and equipped with a radio, children’s CDs, posters, teaching equipment and educational games, the library additionally serves as a weekend-class centre. Nardy’s library also works in close partnership with Nagsabaran Primary School, a local village school, providing additional resources to the school and its students.
