Akpene's story

Akpene's story

My dad took me to the To Be library in Takoradi some 15 years ago, I was around 8 years and that became my home for almost two years. Today I am back in Takoradi as a lawyer, I was called to the Ghanaian bar in the year 2019, as the youngest person to ever achieve such feat and I owe a great deal of the reading habits, simple courtesy and good relationship skills to this magnificent initiative and this library.

When we realised we could not find the right books to support our Reading Club Program we decided to develop our own books! Now we have a series of 12 books for our program. Most important is that these books reflect the children's own world. Thank you to our team of volunteers who helped develop these books!! Interested in our books? Let us know!
