The National Librarian and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), National Library of Nigeria (NLN), Prof Chinwe Veronica Anunobi, has said that efforts are being made to resuscitate the implementation of library hours in schools.

Anunobi, who spoke in Abuja Friday during the scorecard of her stewardship in the last two years in office, said doing so would enhance reading culture among Nigerians.

According to her, a memo had been sent to the Federal Ministry of Education to consider the implementation of reading culture as a policy.

“It is saddening to note that library hours are no longer implemented in many schools. To this end, efforts are being made to resuscitate the implementation of library hours in schools,” she said.

Speaking further, she also said that to strengthen the state-of-the-art national repository, digital equipment has been deployed to protect vulnerable resources in its Lagos strong room.

She said over 1,000 records, including monographs, journals, documents and other resources had been digitised.
