Achieving #SDG4 (Quality Education): Librarians’ involvement

View image on Twitter

Helen’s Thoughts: To achieve ‪#‎SDG4‬(Quality Education), libraries should acquire books that are written in local languages. We should not relegate our mother tongue to the background. When we use it to teach our children, in combination with English, they will perform better. Also, audio books, Video CDs that have mother tongue used for teachings should be acquired. The experiment should be carried out by libraries, individuals and library associations. It should not just end in the acquiring books, but creating awareness to the public about the importance of this process.
