The University of Ghana Staff Village Association (STAVRA) in collaboration with the Human Development Group (HuD), a non-governmental Organisation has reopened the staff village community library.
The reopening of the library forms part of efforts to improve literacy in the community.
Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo, Dean, School of Languages representing the Vice-Chancellor in an address encouraged children in the community to take advantage of the library and improve on their reading.
She indicated that reading aids in becoming a good student and hence urged them to read more.
As a means of ensuring non-closure of the library, she encouraged the STAVRA Executives to look for volunteers who would supervise library activities and keep it running.
Earlier, the Chairperson of STAVRA, Mrs. Sophia Dapaah Mantey in her address expressed gratitude to Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo for gracing the occasion and called on parents to encourage their wards to take advantage of the library.
She also admonished parents to make their children’s education a priority in order not to burden them during their retirement from the University.
Present at the ceremony were Mr. Jones Kwabena Ampadu, who represented the Director of PDMSD, Mr. Nkrumah, Head of Water and Sewage PDMSD, Madam Margaret Ismaila, Tutor, Department of Theatre Arts and Dr. Edwin Acheampong, Lecturer, University of Ghana Business School.
