Pakistan - Community Libraries

In Pakistan, the Sharjah/IBBY Fund supported the creation of a countrywide network of small community libraries beginning in 2013. The project included a two-day conference on issues involved in setting up community libraries and bibliotherapy as well as travel to India to learn about similar projects and ways of creating low-cost quality books in regional languages. A second stage involved awarding small grants and book bundles to selected community libraries.
