Total participation was 2995 children’s. The teachers shared their opinion regarding mobile library facility and are grateful to childfund India, for providing this great opportunity to read and to watch. As in our area most of the government schools lack the basic library facility and this sort of information helps the students to grasp the things well by watching and reading. Thus they expressed the worth of library in the schools that would enhance the interest in the children to read more and to gain knowledge. All the children were happy and expressed their opinion.
