According to our experience, it is a good challenge for children and young people to improve an awareness of reading habit and gain more knowledge.
One student, Chanmesa express her feeling about participating in the challenge and how she won others “Hello! My name Chanmesa. I think that a library is a place where documents are kept. To help students to be as clever students. Furthermore, it is as a teacher who teaches or provides us knowledge if we come to access it. As we know Salariin Kampuchea provides English, computer, life skill and community library access. What I can do in the library are reading books, do research on internet, play games, reading club, group study, folding and drawing pictures and watching movies. For last month, SK librarian conducted a challenge called “The more you read the more you win”. As the result, I won the challenge and got award because I have accessed very often to the library. I books, pens, pencils for my winner. I am very happy and proud of myself to get these awards. Thank you to Salariin Kampuchea for organizing this challenge”.
