Libraries@17000ft is part of our Core initiatives towards improving education in each and every school of rural Ladakh and build a culture of reading and discovery.

We have already setup 220 libraries in remote schools of Ladakh. Our libraries are equipped with colourful, engaging, age appropriate books, in English and Hindi, as well as the local languages, Urdu and Bhoti, largely from domestic publishers. Books are chosen keeping in mind the reading abilities of the children, and emphasis is laid on picture books, locally relevant content and also books which provide exposure to the outside world. 17000 ft libraries consist not only of easy reading and fiction books, but also have reference books, subject exposure books, encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases etc., to aid the child in his academic curriculum. The donation includes - 

  • painting and carpeting of library room
  • a colourful rack specially designed to fit and be useful only for the purpose that it is intended for, keeping pilferage and misuse to a minimum.
  • 300 new books across genres and languages that are replihished every year with new releases, 
  • Library Teaching and Learning Material, a Library Register, a Reading Program Curriculum Booklet
  • Training for teachers on our Library Management System 
  • Multi-day annual Training for 2 Teachers per School for conducting Reading Programs
  • Quarterly in-school Reading Programs, by trained 17000 ft Facilitators
  • Quarterly school visits to monitor performance, gather data and conduct refresher trainings
