iRead Story of Impact and Innovation in the past 4 years

Since iRead Mobile Library opened in October 2013, more than 20,000 children and teenagers have been visited in schools and communities within the western part of Nigeria.
iRead is the first innovative mobile library for children in Nigeria. Children have borrowed nearly 6 thousand books and other library materials with more than 6,000 children and 4200 teens having attended programs organized by the library.
We have launched a network model of community libraries and look forward to hosting children at all our library hubs. We understand that we must continue to invest in our libraries because it is a critical component of arts and culture and quality of life.
On Monday 2nd October, 2017, the Library will be marking her 4th year anniversary. This special occasion is being hailed all week with reading events, environmental films, a presentation on sex education, financial literacy and leadership and a thank you breakfast for the members of staff. Celebration activities at iRead Libraries are free and open to the public.
iRead mobile libraries shuttle between various communities from Monday to Sunday while the library hubs located at Maryland, Surulere, Ogba, Ikorodu and Igando New Town Lagos are open to the public every Saturday from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. iRead Libraries have become a “sanctuary for reading, learning, exploring, thinking, listening and innovating”.
We say a big thank you to all our sponsors, partners and children. #knowledgeispoweroutreach #smefunds #carboncreditnetwork #teensedfoundation #flynetwork #teachersempowermentnetwork #americancorners #usconsulate #yalinetwork #ifakointernationalschool #zionheritageschool #mdschool #africanchurchbethelschool #manuelschool #joyschool #ezekielschool #divineoffspringschool #danielsheritageschool #whitehallschools #clarkatlantauniversity #kidsandcuddlesschool #evergloriousschool #ojuolapeschool #dansolschool #iriseschool #learninghallschool #sparkschools #universityoflagos #ivolunteers #istaff  #rehobothresourcecentre #iparents #ikids #childrenandtheenvironment #letsreadafrica #climatekidsclub #inspirenigeriaproject #tellyournaijastory #glowinitiative #youwin #mandelawashingtonfellowship #usadf #freedomfoundation #funmivirtuouseducationalconsult
