Northern Regional Library organizes personality read

The Ghana Library Authority (GLA) in the Northern Region has organised its second personality reading for some selected students in the Tamale Metropolis to encourage them in their reading habits.

The personality reading was part of the activities for the 2019 year of reading, to inform people about the significance of reading.

Madam Samata Mahama, the Sagnarigu Municipal Director of Education who was the personality of the day, read a book entitled: “The Big Yellow House”, written by Christie Ade-Ajayi.

There were about 200 pupils from Police Barracks Basic School, Dakpema Basic School and Tishigu Anglican School who were given the platform to ask questions regarding the reading book and education in general.

Madam Samata Mahama encouraged the pupils to make time for the library and take reading seriously irrespective of their schedules.

She said it was important as part of the activities to invite all pupils to the library and must be extended to other schools within and outside the Tamale Metropolis to benefit all pupils.

Mr Aaron Kuwornu, the Northern Regional Director of the GLA gave the assurance of making the Library visible and pledged to expand its scope and services through reading.

He advised the pupils to be content with provisions made by their parents and focus on achieving their dreams of becoming great personalities in future.

Ms Alhassan Ayisha a JHS two pupil of the Police Barracks School said such programmes improved their personal relationships with people and enabled them to tackle some challenges of life as reading exposed young ones to reality. 

Master Seidu Haruna, a JHS one pupil of Dakpema Basic School also expressed joy about the programme saying, “It enhances the speed of pupil’s reading ability as well as helping understand certain keywords”.
