About Us

Bookworm Trust was founded on 2014 after nine years of Bookworm begin established as a small partnership firm. In the nine years of ‘pilot’ work, Bookworm demonstrated that there was a deep need to take library work to deserving communities, to spread the joy of reading and also to enhance critical literacy skills amongst children in Goa.

The Trust was settled by Elaine Mendonsa a partner in Bookworm and is presently managed by three Trustees. The Trustees have reposed all working responsibility with Sujata Noronha, who is the present Director.

A Fine Bookworm
June 25, 2017

Nicole Remedios find a nest where it’s actually Book warm! On a fine rainy day, Gayatri Borkar walked the Santismo lane in Taleigao. Splashing in little puddles along the way, she noticed a pink house named ‘Bookworm’. Now who haven’t heard of this place yet? It’s pretty obvious to have seen few books labelled Bookworm […]

Out growing my Pre- School Group
June 20, 2017

Over the last three years, the Preschool Morning at Bookworm has been one of my most enjoyable responsibilities. Preschool mornings are held every Saturday come what may….unless of course it is a public holiday. This is an Early Literacy Program that nurtures preschoolers to engage with books to inculcate a love for books and reading. […]
