GYRF launched the “Book Garage’ a street library initiative during the Covid-19 pandemic in June 2021. The premise behind this project is simple yet powerful: individuals can leave their old books in designated locations so that those who lack the means can discover and enjoy new books for free. We have already installed 33 street libraries across four different regions, housing a total of 5,000 books across Bangladesh. These libraries have been a tremendous success, with approximately 5,500 children and numerous adults benefitting from this initiative.
By establishing Book Garages in such locations, we aim to achieve the following objectives:
We firmly believe that the implementation of book garages in different areas will significantly enhance the educational and cultural landscape of the community. The project aligns perfectly with the goals of promoting literacy, providing equal opportunities, and fostering a society that values knowledge and understanding.
