LIBRARY PROMOTES GOOD VALUES: GAVIDI
Library promotes good values that will encourage positive behaviour in the children’s future, says senior education officer Lautoka – Yasawa, Joseva Gavidi.
He officially closed the National Library week at the Civic Centre in Nadi yesterday.
“The Library contributes to the behaviour of our kids and people, when we enter libraries it promotes good values that we want our kids to promote in their lives.
“Where people are expected to be silent in the room and take more knowledge in while reading, also it promotes neatness and you will find it is one of the safest place for your children to be in,” he said.
Mr Gavidi said the Library itself could transform our kids to become better citizens of Fiji, apart from becoming better citizens of Fiji there were other things which children could be transformed into this new age. “Our kids can transform into teachers, doctors, engineers and they can become prime ministers and that is what our Library services around the country provide to our kids,” he said.
He said the more you send your children to the library you will find that the behaviour pattern of your child compared to a child you normally send to an internet shop which would be noisy and crowded.
“It is totally different to that of the Library promotes the total opposite of it. That is a best place to send your kids as these will bring our kids a wealth of knowledge,” he said. LITIA TIKOMAILEPANONI Edited by: Rusiate Mataika
