Members Visits to BREAD Children’s Libraries:
To assess the performance of BREAD Children’s Libraries, our Members visit schools in various districts. These reports reflect the factual situation as obtained at that time. Visits to schools help us understand the problems involved in the implementation of the program.
Field visits to the libraries set up in 2009-10 and 2010-11 has resulted in observing that there was need to improve the performance of library schools. It was then decided to select schools for setting up libraries in an objective manner and arrived at the norm of selecting schools securing 6 or more National Means cum Merit Scholarships (NMMS) in a year. This has proved to be the correct decision as we are achieving far better success with our library program in NMMS schools.
Two field studies were conducted by BREAD Society to ascertain the economic backwardness of the families of the selected scholars. The first study was conducted in January/February 2004 and the second study was conducted three years later between January and March 2007.
