Minister of Education and Science of Georgia Dimitri Shashkini visited the refurbished library of public school №60 and presented the school with a collection of Young Adults’ Literature.
Upgrading of the school libraries is one of the initiatives of the President and priorities of the Ministry. In 2010 the process of renovating of the school libraries and supplying them with the books began.
Library of public school №60 fully meets the modern standards and there are 12 000 books there. It is an ideal environment for holding lessons, literature evenings and open classes. The school is planning to invite famous authors and public figures and arrange their meetings with the schoolchildren.
Apart from the reading room, the library has a room with computers, where schoolchildren can search any information. Refurbishing of the school library was carried out within the means of the school’s budget.
Ministry regularly supplies the school libraries with supplementary manuals and other learning materials. Last year, all schoolchildren from socially vulnerable families were provided with the textbooks. After these schoolchildren use the books, they are handed over to the school library so that other schoolchildren can also benefit from them.
