  • The Nepal-Japan Children's Library - Update: September 2015 Posted on 17 September 2015

    We have heard this month from Sapana Sharma, head of the library, about two exciting new developments. A mobile library has recently been set up in the home of one of the library's supporters so that children living at a distance from the library can now access books. Another supporter has been working on a software system to computerise the library and there are high hopes that this will be up-and-running from October.

     Children choose books from the mobile library


     The Nepalese Children's Trust raises money to help support the library, the only one of its kind in Nepal, which is completely free and open to all children. The Trust fund-raises throughout the year to purchase books and other educational materials and the development of a toy library is a project currently under discussion. Good quality educational playthings are expensive and hard to come by - a toy library is an ideal way to give as many young children as possible access to such toys.


    Toys can be educational too
