MPs Challenged to build Libraries In Electorates


The current status of education in the country is still a concern and local MPs have been challenged to build more libraries within their respective districts.
Director General of the Office of Library and Archives Kakaito kasi made this call last week.
"Every year, 112,000 grade eight students sit for exams and only 60000 move onto secondary schools and at the end of grade 10, out of the 60000 that sit for the exams, only 30000 continue on to Grade 11. At the end, between 7000 to 8000 students pass through to tertiary institutions while the rest find their way through FODE and other means. One of the contributing factors is that schools do not have enough resources such as a library.
"Many schools in the country do not have a library," he said.
He posed the challenge to Moresby Northeast MP John Kaupa and Member for Moresby Northwest Lohia Boe Samuel who were present at the reopening of the former Hohola Public library which is now known as Mary Kairu Warus.
"You both must put up district libraries for people to have access to them. In today's society, we are having issues with written communication and oral speeches as many people do not write and speak proper English.
"People must know the importance of reading because reading helps both our physical and mental health," Mr Kasi said.
Mr Samuel said in his short term, he will begin with setting up two mobile libraries in the form of buses to visit schools in his electorate.
When officiating the reopening and renaming of the Hohola Public library, Mr Samuel said we as Papua New Guineans must strive for legacy, something that we must leave behind for people to see and talk about.
"There are many unsung heroes who have done a lot at the background for the people and such a person is someone like late Mary.
"I am now a MP because of a library because when I was young, I used to spend time at the library at Ela Beach, borrow a book and read them. I challenge all to read more books and stay away from too much internet and mobile phone games and start visiting the library to seek knowledge and become a better person in the future," he said.
He urged children and adults as well to visit the library at Hohola.

National Book Week Launched

Minister for Education Jimmy Uguro launched this year's National Book Week among a number of events, at the National Library and Archives in Port Moresby yesterday. Minister Uguro emphasized that it is a must that all schools across the country have libraries.
 
He said government is embarking on establishing school libraries and public libraries in all districts and provincial headquarters throughout the country.
 
Uguro said it is relevant that the public has access to reading materials too.
 
"It is the priority of the Marape-Basil Government to ensure that our libraries are accessible to our citizens and schools throughout the country.
 
"All schools must have school libraries, apart from the classroom, teachers houses and science labs. There must be a school library and it must be priority for our schools”, added Minister Uguro.
 
The Minister also launched the Office of the Library and Archives Corporate Plan 2021-2023, the reopening of the Hohola Public Library and the Kamuti Mobile Library.
 
The Kamuti Mobile Library is named after Francis Kamuti, the longest serving public servant with the National Library.
 
Kamuti served there for 45 years.
