[DUBAI] Dusty and deserted school libraries are having a long overdue injection of fun. The “least-visited facilities” in Abu Dhabi’s government schools are being converted into Learning Resource Centres, where children will go for classes, activities and research. Each centre will be stocked with more than 3,000 English and Arabic books, magazines and newspapers.
They will be made more spacious with comfortable furniture and will include a role-playing area, reading corners, multimedia access, TV and an online catalogue.
The makeover, to be complete in three years, is part of Abu Dhabi Education Council’s solution to children’s diminishing interest in reading. (via Boring school libraries? Not any more - The National)
