Agbado Ijaiye Primary School Library

Agbado Ijaiye Primary School is located in Ijaiye-Ojokoro LCDA / Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government area of Lagos state. There are 2 public primary schools (School 1-2) in the compound with a population of over 3000 pupils. Both schools have no libraries for their pupils. PEA Foundation in partnership with small World/India Team and Bambini group of Schools established a library in the school, which was commissioned on 16th of May, 2017. The library has over 3,500 books all open unto the students to use.

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.
