Purpose

The Happy Hearts Library Program seeks to build child-friendly school libraries to provide children with access to quality materials to read inside and outside schools. Our libraries develop children’s reading skills and habit of reading in the early primary grades up to high school level. These programs will help children become life-long, independent readers.

Our programs at 7 of our libraries are developed by the local Taman Baca Inovator Foundation (TBI) which includes the distribution of books, detailed lesson plans, classroom materials, and comprehensive teacher professional development. These programs are closely monitored and evaluated by TBI and complemented by the coaching of teachers and appointed librarians.
