Libraries are Source of Knowledge Project 2014-2017

Funded by Drosos Foundation  

“Libraries are Sources of Knowledge” is a project implemented by the House of Tales and Music in partnership with Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) and with the support of Drosos Foundation.

The project aims at improving eight public children’s libraries under GAM over the course of two and a half years and through two phases, each phase consisting of four libraries.

Accordingly House of Tales and Music held capacity building training workshops for librarians and members of the the local community. The training workshops aimed to train the beneficiaries in storytelling and Alhakawati, music, theater and drama, hand-crafts and paintings)  and how to plan for a programs for children in order to attract more children to visit the libraries.

The next stage of the project is upgrading the targeted libraries and do maintenance work to make the libraries friendly and secure spaces for the children. In addition to that 500 books of varied topics and set of basic teaching tools will be distributed to each library.
