On the 18th July, 2012 Mr. Atawura Maxwell of Gowrie - Kunkua Library organized an after-school reading programme for primary four (4), five (5), and six (6) Kids. He invited two library users from the Kunkua community (Mr. Akariyama Clement and Miss. Agana Natashia) with the Coordinator to assist him. The two Volunteers are SSS leavers (Completed SSS).
The kids were grouped according to their reading abilities, table by table. Five (5) tables were set. The kids were first tested before being put into groups. It was very interesting to know that some kids in Class four (4) could read fluently and better than some Class Six (6) kids. Most of those kids who could read better were kids who are noted to be library users. We started at 2:00pm and closed at 3:30pm. One title of a Book was given to a table meaning everyone on the table got the same book. Eg. Maria's Wish for everyone on table one. The kids' were first made to read allow for everyone on the table one after another page by page. Kids with some words pronunciation problems were helped by another or any of us. They then made to read silently and individually after some time. The books were rotated for the fast Readers. That is the books were exchanged by tables or titles to those who finished their books in time.
This was a lovely day and would be continue for all the libraries.
