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
