The children of Pragathi Children’s Society, Buddhist Centre, Rambewa, Anuradhapura were able to start a Little Library on their own with the support of CUP on 18th June 2011.
The concept of Little Library is to enhance the ability of reading among children and also to encourage them towards creative writing. The children will get more opportunities to learn leadership skills, team work, organizing patterns and sharing with others through the experience gained in this project.
