The Reading Room established in this school is located in two rooms on the first floor of the main building. One of the rooms is used for books and the other is for a Reading Room. The room sizes are 23 x 18 ft. Each wall of the library is cheerfully painted a different color and the floors are carpeted.
Some wonderful pictures:
Our educational partner and the organization that helped make this happen is Room to Read - www.RoomtoRead.org - an incredible non-profit that has now helped build / fund 442 schools and over 5100 bilingual libaries!
