Mumbai, Dec 2: Recently, a few school libraries were inaugurated in memory of the late Ln Ashok Kumbhar, who believed in the importance of education, as well as helping the poor and the needy students.
During the last year too, Lioness District 323 A2 had opened three libraries in Marathi schools in Nerul and surrounding areas with the help of Dikshit, an officer in the social welfare department, Konkan Bhavan here. This year too, Deepali helped Ls Mala Shetty and Ls Suprabha Raorane, president of Lions Club of Belapur, in short listing the schools which were in need of libraries.
Libraries help students to study better and assist them to become good orators, hone their drawing skills and becoming good copy writers, as the books donated to these libraries also aimed at helping them improve their extra curricular skills. A couple of book stalls too helped Ls members to get books at a concession of around 50%, thus enabling them to get more books to donate to these libraries.
Asivni Kumbhar, wife of the late Ln Ashok Kumbhar, Ls Anagha Kunnure, district president, and new governor, Ln Rajesh Prajapati, who also happens to be the ex-chairman of Navi Mumbai Builders Association, also felt such libraries should be opened in more and more schools.
Another library was opened at Anmol School in Ghod Bundar Road here.
