Reference libraries for teachers

Reference libraries for teachers

Disparities in education along the lines of gender, urban-rural schools still run deep, and more investments in education infrastructures are required.

Quality educational resources for teachers

We donate Teacher’s Reference Libraries to improve the quality of education at rural schools. Teachers gain access to educational resources that dramatically improves their school’s infrastructure along with the quality of education they can provide their students. A Teacher’s Reference Library consists of books on how to teach STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and math), history and language, as well as books on the arts, child psychology, physical education, and nutrition. A Teacher’s Reference Library provides teachers access to quality resources so that they can teach to their fullest potential.

Reference Books for Teachers

The Library Project provides a wide range of local language teacher’s educational resource books including Core Subjects (math, science, history and language), health and nutrition, physical education, the arts, children’s psychology, sex education, general teaching skills, and a set of dictionaries and thesauruses. Each school also receives books on school management, class management, and campus security. Every book is brand new and of the highest print quality.

To acquire our books, we work with various large bookstore’s regional warehouses, online book distributors, and resellers. For the most part, we receive deep discounts between 20-80% off the retail price of each book. This allows us to provide the highest quality books to fill the shelves of each of our library donations at a very reasonable price.

Teacher training, monitoring, evaluation & support

The Library Project provides a comprehensive training course for the teachers and administration at each library that is donated. Our training course is created specifically for teachers and administrators on how to manage their reference library. This course covers how to properly care for their library, how to use the books in a classroom setting, and how to get the teaching staff involved in the maintenance of their library.

We have found that this training course results in 94% of our libraries being effectively used on a daily-to-weekly basis after the first year. The Library Project conducts one-year of monitoring & evaluation and when schools need support they receive additional training.
