Library on Wheels

CHIREC International’s new student led social initiative will travel to different government schools around the city bringing works of literature in different languages to those who may not have easy access to libraries and book stores. Students will be able to browse, borrow and return books as well as have access to study and educational materials.

CHIREC International’s new student-led social initiative is a Library on Wheels! We replaced the seats with shelves and have transformed one of our school buses into a welcoming space filled with books for all ages, world maps, informative charts and colourful quotes. CHIREC’s Mobile Library travels to different government schools around the city, bringing works of literature in different languages to those who may not have easy access to libraries and book stores. Students will be able to browse, borrow and return books, as well as have access to study and educational materials. The Library on Wheels is staffed by a driver, a conductor and students from Grades 10, 11 and 12 of the IB sections. CHIREC’s Library On Wheels was inaugurated on July 29th, 2016 by Smt. Amala Akkineni, Actress, Social Activist and Co-founder of the Blue Cross of Hyderabad.

Ever since its inception, the CHIREC Library on Wheels has been very busy. Every week, from Monday to Thursday, four students from Stages 10 through 12 of the International Section visit six schools around CHIREC: the Zilah Parishad schools near BHEL Township and Khajaguda, and the four government schools of Masjid Banda, Lingampally, Serilingampally and Gachibowli.

Our student volunteers conduct reading sessions for the students of these schools. They work with them and help them develop their reading skills with special focus on intonation and pronunciation. These schools have assigned a special library period for their students on the dates corresponding to our visits, and encourage their staff and students to make full use of this opportunity.

The second phase of the program will kick-off as soon as the students return for the new academic year, in March 2017. The new features of the second phase will include the provision to lend books from the Library.
