From September until the beginning of November the Mobile Library has seen an increase of 99 newly registered and regular child users of the Mobile Library. The increase has included children aged six years old who have just started school and also younger children. So we now have many more children of preschool age coming with their parents to join in with the activities and also to choose a book for their parents to read to them. Early contact with books, words and pictures and the time spent one to one with an adult enjoying a book is a good precursor for a lifelong reading habit.
In two villages visited by the Mobile Library, Berishe and Mash, the school director and teachers have expressed their delight at the activities of the Mobile Library due to the lack of basic equipment in the school. Activities with balls and skipping ropes and team games have been conducted by the Library Assistant. Books bought with some of the donations are being lent to improve the daily lessons iin the poorer schools and kindergartens.
Arben, a boy aged eight from Llugaj Commune wrote the attached poem, describing his feelings about the library, Naim and Ilir who each month come to his village.
Winter is approaching in Tropoje District with snow already on some of the higher mountains. The Mobile Library will venture into the villages and communities each month unless the paths are blocked. During the darker and colder months the children will need a new book each time to inspire them and fire their imagination of the world outside their small community.
