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 four Trustees. The Trustees have reposed all working responsibility with Sujata Noronha, who is the present Director.

Bookworm Jumble Sale 2018: the place to be!
February 1, 2018

It seems to be a tradition for the library to be thrumming with a cauldron of high strung nerves, high end energy, combined with immense anticipation and excitement, during the month of January. The reason of course, being: the Jumble Sale. During this month, we are as likely to be bombarded by shouts and loud […]

Memoirs in the Library
January 29, 2018

This year I have the joy of teaching a small group of young adults at the library. A group of five middle schoolers who are on the threshold of being swept into the undercurrent of literature and life. Being a group in an open program with an open educator, we have the freedom to choose […]
