Spring Fundraiser

The Community Library Project is committed to creating a just , equal, Anti-Caste library space where all are welcome and where we nurture our young community members to grow into leaders, who will lead the library movement. The commitment of TCLP to be a Community owned, community led organisation can only be fulfilled when our young members are mentored to take ownership, to take responsibility.

To empower our member leaders, we need to provide them with platforms where they can build leadership acumen and to provide them with learning tools to enhance skills & help them to take responsibility for complex subjects like Digital Media, Finance & Reading Fluency curriculum

The 13-18 year old student leaders in our member leadership program each receive 6-8 training and educational outings each year to train in reading aloud to members, using library software, and designing social media posts for member outreach. They are trained to learn almost everything a full-time librarian can do. Currently, there are 38 young members in this program.

Core team members are Member leaders who continue in our program after completing class 12 also receive continued training, educational, and cultural opportunities. They get assistance in obtaining college admission and learn how to help others in this process. These members are eligible for a six-month paid internship and, later, to become full-time or part-time librarians. Currently, there are 21 core team members, including 15 librarians–and our deputy director!

We can only do this with the continued support and commitment from all of you who have always believed in us. We strongly believe in a skilled youth power to take our society and communities forward and to empower the library movement and society at large.
