The First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, has commissioned a forty-seater computerised library facility in Moree in the Abura/Asebu/Kwamankese District of the Central region.
The library facility was an initiative of the Rebecca Akufo-Addo foundation aimed at improving reading among Ghanaian children.
Mrs Akufo-Addo, who is also the Executive Director of the Rebecca Foundation, said three computerised libraries have also been constructed in Dafiama Bissue Issah in the Upper West Region, Sefwi Debiso in the Western North Region and Wenchi in the Bono Region.
She hinted that the Foundation would construct three more libraries in Kumawu in the Ashanti Region, Krachi East in the Oti Region and Achimota School in the Greater Accra Region to help children in these communities cultivate the habit of reading.
She urged children to read a book a day to learn new things and also improve their communication skills.
Mrs Akufo-Addo also appealed to the Ministry of Education to build library facilities in basic schools as part of the education reforms programme.
