  2. 2. 2 0.1. INTRODUCTION The raining season has started and farming activities have begun. This will be a challenge for the village parents, they will seek helping hands from the children. And this will create also a low patronage to the community libraries. However, this monthly report covers the activities and events that took place within the month of May. I was able to visit the libraries that is the Gowrie-Kunkua community library and that of the Sherigu Community libraries. Within the month too the library activities were carried on positively. In this report we will present the happennings of Sumbrungu, Gowrie-Kunkua and Sherigu Community libraries respectively. 0.2. THE SUMBRUNGU COMMUNITY LIBRARY. For this month we have recorded low number of patronage in both day and night sessions. This is because some of the library users assist their parents on the farms as a new farming season has just began and most of the senior high students are at school at the moment. And some days the rain prevents those who wish or are free to come to the library. The activities for the month of May included; individual reading, storytelling, group reading, games, and video show.
  3. 3. 3 Patrons love reading ‘Tetteh the tadpole’ during group reading. They read it in groups. On 27th may, 2022, we had a video show in the library and the title of the video was ‘The gods must be crazy II’, patrons loved the movie very much that they laughed together while watching. The purpose of the video was to entertain and help encourage them to come to the library always. The month of May, is the time the farming season starts over here which patrons also help their parents get their various farms ready for a new farming season, so most of our patrons usually come at night to read in the library We hope to provide for the Sumbrungu Community Library more furniture and text books for junior and senior high schools, as well as more African story books and games. Individual reading was done in the library with patrons both day and night times of times, the children consulted the librarian for help whenever they cannot pronounce or spell while reading.
  4. 4. 4 0.3. SHERIGU COMMUNITY LIBRARY During this month’s activities, there were encouragement in the library in terms of attendance and participation. A good number of our library user’s came both day time and night time to patronize. The adult males were, adult females, children males and children females and at the end of the month, I had recorded high number of library user’s. They were a lot of activities that were carried out in our community library. They included group reading, individual reading, playing of games like ludu, ampe and visitation to the nearby schools. Some of the books that were read during our group reading were ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘Amoako and the Forest’, ‘Diana a hairdresser learns to read’, ‘Veronica a caterer Learns to read’, ‘Kente for a king’, ‘Once upon a time’, ‘Mandy’s revenge’, ‘Kofi and the sack of sticky feathers’, ‘Akosua's gift just to mention a few’. I personally read books such as Dancing queen, Fati and the honey tree, Kente for a king. Night sessions: high patronage (picture 1) Night sessions: high patronage (picture 2)
  5. 5. 5 The libraries coordinator and the librarian also visited the Dorongo JHS and Sherigu JHS and Primary School to educate them about the library in their community and also to form reading groups among them. The libraries coordinator in the person of Mr. Benedict was the only visitor recorded in the course of the month with the purpose of his usual visit of monitoring the library and also patronizing the library in the nearby schools. The metal door was also replaced with The Old wooden door. The carpenter has been able to use the zinc plaster on the roofing because some parts of the zinc were leaking
  6. 6. 6 We forward in providing the library some detergents and more games articles. 0.4. GOWRIE-KUNKUA COMMUITY LIBRARY This month ended without a single problem. Every library users in Gworie-kunkua community library think this month is the month of growth for the library, as far as the library club brings together the children to the library to read and learn. This affirms the statement that ‘anything that starts well will automatically end well’. This presents a challenge to the librarian and its team to work hand in hand with coordinator to get every challenge resolved. The library users have started to show their great interest for the library by attending the library activities on due time and also made good use of their time in the library. The village children now use more of the library as their center of learning. Sherigu village children are out to patronize the library hours. During my visit to the far away from the library, schools the headteachers expressed their positive interest to work in way that the books can research their schools too as far as their people cannot research the library because of the distance.
  7. 7. 7 The electricity problem is not yet fixed, that affects the night time. Even the ceiling of the library is not yet worked on. That also causes heat during the hot season and noise when it rains. On the aspect of the library’s activities, it said that, ‘several practice make people better’. So, the talented people always had their ambitions come through constant practices. So this brings out the need for every library users in the library to get involve in any activity that takes on in the library or outside the library. A lot of games were played both competitive and non-competitive games like ludo, oware, cross word cubes, draughts, cards and puzzles. Also the Classroom Group Reading pilot (school library times) in kunkua primary school are still going on. It is very interesting since we introduced these activities in the schools. The book that we started with them was ‘Kente for a King’ by Kathy Knowles. OUTDOOR GAMES NEW MEMBERS OF THE LIBRARY READERS’ CLUB
  8. 8. 8 As usual, the library had a great number of parents and guardians visiting this month to monitor their children in the library. Also our managing director/coordinator in the person of Mr. Benedict also paid a number of visit both the schools and the library for supervision and monitoring. 0.5. MONTHLY GENERAL MEETING In this month we had our general meeting of librarians to put our second four month program together. We were able to put the activities together in a table to guide our events. We welcome another new librarian, in the person of Marinus Amoah Anaba into the team and also said good bye to Asanga Joseph who had an appointment with the Ghana Police Service. I took that as an opportunity to take the librarians through the library ethics.
