TLP is a Friend of Northern Ireland

We would like to extend a huge TLP “thank you” to everyone who attended the Friends of Northern Ireland in China’s Annual Christmas Dinner in support of The Library Project.  Their donation will go directly toward a Reading Room for the Ying Chang Manchu County Elementary School located in rural Liaoning Province.  306 students will be impacted because of this library donation.

They chose to support the Liaoning Province because Northern Ireland has a long history of working with the Liaoning Province.  Members of the Friends of Northern Ireland in China will lend a hand with the installation of the school’s new library during the Spring Semester.

The library donation will also received a Teacher Training component. TLP’s Teacher Training Course is a comprehensive multiple year training program supporting teachers and administrators on how to manage and utilize their new library. This course covers how to properly loan books to students, how to use the children’s books in a classroom setting, and how to get the students involved in the maintenance of their library. Coupled with the Teacher Training Course, TLP will conduct three years of Monitoring & Evaluation.  When a school is in need of support, it will receive additional training for teachers.

Huge thank you to everyone at the Friends of Northern Ireland for their support of rural literacy.
