Learning through questions
February 21, 2018

This New Year, questions about how children could manage school, tuition classes, house chores and still manage to come to the library sessions, were at the back of my mind. Would books more closely related to their school subjects, satisfy their conceptual needs for academics, as well as draw more children into the world of […]

Jumble GQ ( Giving Quotient )

Without children there would have been no library programs   Without library programs there would have been no Bookworm   Without Bookworm there would have been no Bookworm team   Without Bookworm team there would have been no Jumble Sale   Without the Jumble Sale there would have been no space hunting   Without the […]

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.

We have much happiness to report. A growing tribe of readers with an additional LiS school this year. A new house in Chimbel for […]

The Story of a Panther
December 23, 2017

This very fine book published posthumously by Ravi Dayal and disturbed by Orient Longman includes the remarkable illustrative style of Mickey Patel, but for me more powerful is the ethical dilemma […]

Growing at Bookworm
December 13, 2017

The day I read the advertisement about a vacancy in Bookworm, I somehow felt that it would be a great place for me to work in. I spoke to a few of my friends who knew about the organisation and they all gave positive feedback. My first contact with the Bookworm team was on 15th […]
