Construction of Library at Lakshmipuram Z.P. High School

Lakshmipuram, Visakhapatnam District, AP
 

Library was constructed in Zilla Parishad High School, Lakshmipuram Village, Visakhaptnam District of Andhrapradesh. Bighelp constructed this library using donation from Ghosh/Chasin Fund and by soliciting donations of materials and workmanship from the local community.

The Zilla Parishad High School is a public school that serves students in Lakshmipuram village and its surrounding villages of Chodavaram mandal in Visakhapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh. This school has around 270 students studying between 6th and 10th standards. With limited number of classrooms that are hardly sufficient to meet the demands of students and teachers, having a library for the school was a most amazing thing that students and teachers could dream since its incorporation in 1988. This library was constructed on the roof of the existing school building with quiet environment and lot of open space for students to sit outside and read. Around 1500 books and a computer that was provided by the Government was setup in the library to serve the students. Headmaster had appointed one of the teachers Mr. Ramana Babu as in-charge to maintain the library. Together, Bighelp, school staff, students and local community continue to identify and prioritize additions to the library
