LIBRARY

 At first, We would like to present our genuine thanks to all Our generous donors, we have received a large amount of unique, productive, and interesting books.


Why a Library? A library is a place where one can acquire a large number of information from all aspects of the world.
Numbers of researches have shown that reading has huge benefits in kids development as it enhances one’s knowledge about their sector of interest, also gets an opportunity to increase their skills and talent. CT’Kids Library is specialized in children’s literature as reading habits should start at the youngest age to be efficient.

Reading benefits are:

  • Train the brain
  • Increase vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, writing
  • Increase attention and concentration capacities
  • Increase capacities of understanding and solving problems
  • Develop the imagination and creativity
  • Nourish general and world knowledge
  • Develop self thinking and situations analysis
  • Develop empathy, care, respect and understanding of other
    And many more……

We experimented on some of the main problems in Ladakh which slow down the children’s attraction toward literature, books.

  • Lake of books offers and access
  • Lake of literature in their mother language
  • Lake of reading people models

Earlier, Ladakh has a very unique culture of oral narration of old-saga talking about the kings of Ladakh (Gyalam Kesar), stories talking about some old traditional practices still ongoing in Ladakh, for people who come together every evening to have this storytelling session.

But nowadays, the drastic change of lifestyle due to the development in Ladakh brought a huge amount of change in the social structure and practices. Nowadays social and face-to-face interaction is low and more of virtual interactions, which eventually replace the storytelling session with all the virtual platforms like youtube, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp
