Summary

In an increasingly digital world, we see the role of libraries as community and cultural centers at times undervalued, and occasionally under fire. When shrinking government budgets combine with the nonstop technological revolution, public library services that focus on building community face-to-face, inspiring and educating the younger ones about art, sciences, literature, and music, and helping them engage in civil discourse can seem quaint.

Challenge

Despite Iwo being the most populous local government in Osun State, it cannot boast of having any other library except this. Iwo Local Government boasts a school-aged resident population of over a hundred thousand. In the last few years, the state of the library has been moving from decline to decline. As at the moment, the library cannot boast of a single functional book. What remain of the library include the building, over a dozen chairs, half a dozen tables and empty shelves.

Solution

Through a community intervention, a building has been secured already for the library. All it remains now is the furniture, computers, internet facility and books. We plan to divide the library into two; an e-library and a conventional library. Materials that are being solicited for include; Furniture Books (for Junior and Senior Secondary School Students) including literary books Computers (laptop) Internet facilities Book shelve Generator Cabinets

Long-Term Impact

Having a standard library in Iwo will be of great pleasure to the teaming students of the town, the general populace and of course become a resource centre for every intellectual individual. It will be a dynamic centre for idea interaction. The project will provide opportunity for more than 15,000 students to have access to modern library.
