Resource and Research:
The libraries will serve as a statewide resource and reference centre for students at all levels of formal education, especially those in universities and colleges. The availability of text books, reference books and resource materials is a dire problem in Nigeria. Libraries are few and far between, and when available, are very poorly equipped. Help us fight this man-made ignorance.
The libraries will serve as forums for local people to share their experiences while learning about other parts of the world, which the government deprived the people of for decades. Through the availability of books, newspapers, magazines, newsletters, guest lecturers, academic contests, etc., the people will begin to envision a better way of life to which they are entitled.
Planning and Organization:
The libraries will serve as a forum for a kind of think-tank that will present seminars and lectures in the language and culture of the people. These lectures and seminars will focus on the empowerment of the people. Students and intellectuals will be able to use the libraries’ mini-auditoria to pull together their creative ideas.
Human Civil Rights Education:
The mini auditoria of the libraries will serve as accessible forums for the education of people on human and civil rights. This will form a basis for a nucleus of a people-based democracy that recognizes the dignity of the human person and the dignity of human labor. It is hoped that such education will reduce the frequent violence and deaths arising from religious, ethnic, and cultural hostility and intolerance.
