The National Library of Nigeria (NLN) has donated hundreds of books to the Nigeria Correctional Service to enhance reading culture among suspects and prisoners.

The National Librarian, Professor Lenrie Olatokunbo Aina, while making the presentation, said last year during the annual readership promotion campaign, the NLN officials visited one correctional centre in each of the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, and enlightened inmates on the importance of reading culture.

He explained that the donations also included foodstuff and promised more next year to support the inmates to improve their lives.

The national librarian said NLN donated books worth N50,000 to each of the correctional centres visited.

Receiving the donations in his office on behalf of the inmates, the Comptroller General, Nigeria Correctional Service, Ahmed Jafaru, expressed appreciation and commended the efforts by the National Library of Nigeria.
