Addressing the gathering during the opening of the facility, Mrs Florence Adjepong, Co-Founder of Alpha Beta School, said the idea to establish a community library was mooted during the 20th Anniversary celebration of the school in 2008.

She said, the facility is established to encourage reading habits in children.

Florence Adjepong also indicated that, the Alpha Beta Charitable Trust through its seven years journey of building the library had support from the Ghana Education Service (GES), Parents and students as well as companies and institutions which contributed immensely to the materialization of the dream.

She also revealed that, there will be other activities including reading and writing competitions, storytelling competitions and ICT training for users of the facility. This she said, will encourage peoples’ participation in patronizing the facility.

The facility which can accommodate eighty (80) pupils will be managed by two full-time staff, a teacher and student volunteer from Alpha Beta School and attract a membership fee of Gh¢5.00.

Florence Adjepong called on leaders of the community to encourage members of the community to take advantage of the library, and urged children to see the library as a step to their future greatness since reading is life.

On her part, the MP for Ablekuma West, Hon. Ursula Ekuful, charged children especially, to frequent the facility on daily basis to acquire knowledge for their academic activities.

She averred that, parents must ensure that children use the library at their leisure times instead of them engaging in activities that are unprofitable.

She pledged to pay the membership fee for the first hundred (100) people who will visit the facility as members.
