Beni (Myagdi), Oct 10: Establishment of community schools in Myagdi district has reportedly led to development of reading habit in the students of the schools.
Students are now utilizing their free time for reading books other than their regular text books.
Presently library has been set up in 99 community schools while books have been donated to other 14 schools, according to Library Coordinator of Gaja Youth Club Hari Krishna Gautam.

“Our goal is to ultimately set up a library in every community school in the district”, says Gautam.
The establishment of library in our school had improved the reading habit of our students, with many becoming regular members of the library, said Principal of Bal Jagrit Primary School Bhakta Karki.
