Agbado Ijaiye Primary School is located in Ijaiye-Ojokoro LCDA / Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government area of Lagos state and the school has a population of over 3000 pupils. It is worthy of note that there are 2 public primary schools (School 1-2) in the compound and none of these schools has a library that is suitable for children.
In the process of setting up the library, we discovered that the reading skills of the pupils was poor even though they were eager to read and use the library. Therefore programs such as book reading and storytelling sessions were incorporated in the school time-table to ensure that the students continually engaged in the use of the library.
The library has over 3,500 books all open unto the students to use. This is pleasing because these geniuses now have access to books during their school hours that will serve as the foundation and building blocks to their future handing over to them information without having to struggle for it. The library was established in a partnership with small World/India Team and Bambini group of Schools on 16th of May, 2017.
