Reading is an important part of any child’s education and we are encouraging parents to instill in children the love of reading.
These were the words of Library Services of Fiji librarian, Sereima Rorokole, at the National Library Week celebration at Sukuna Park yesterday.
“We have about seven schools from the Suva to Nausori corridor and we are really happy with the turnout,” Ms Rorokole said.
She said they wanted to remind students of the importance of libraries and of reading.
“Every year, we keep having these sorts of activities to remind them about reading and how it is important for their development.”
Ms Rorokole said they hoped the week-long celebration would be meaningful to everyone.
Riya Ritika Chandra, 11, of Vuci Methodist Primary School, Nausori said she was having a good time with her friends and her favourite part was dressing up in book characters.
“I believe that libraries are very important and children should start reading from a young age,” Riya said.
She said her favourite book was ‘Cinderella’.
Taniya Kiran, 11, said reading books was important because pupils learned new things and reading improved their English.

She said she had planned to read a lot of books when she grows up and her favourite book was ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’.
The week-long celebration will end on July 12.
