Promoting Book reading the CRIMMD LIBRARY WAY

Promoting book reading at CRIMMD comes in different ways this was awesome, it was our ‘Reading with Fun series tagged “The 'Ijebu-Garri-Drinking-Book Reading event”.

Facebook friend turn sister madam Atinuke Balogun aka Mama Onigarri donated to us, 10 bags of 1kg ijebu garri, and one bag of 2kg, total of 12kg, we had sugar, milk, two bottles of groundnut, and a pot of hot steaming Aganyin-bean (soft over cooked beans). The program started by 12.30 and ended by 2pm, it was held as usual at our CRIMMD FREE PUBLIC Library venue, 138 Ejigbo-Idimu road, by Ago-Adura bus stop, Idimu, Lagos.

 It was chaired by Mr. Tunde Oduwole. The books read are: ‘Nigeria their Nigeria’ by Dan Agbese; ‘Future tense’ by Richard O. Ikiebe and Taiwo Obe; ‘Live Your Abundant life’ by Aya Fubara Eneli; ‘Writing the wrong’ by Chid Chidi Amuta; ‘Miracle on the Hudson’ by Gozie Udemezue (Nwanyioma Nwachinemelu); ‘Nigerian festivals’ by Pelu Awofeso; ‘Cate saves the Ikopi Rain Forest’ by Adesola Aduke Arit Alamutu and Peju Dawodu; ‘Perspective from my mind’s eye’ by Steve Akadiri; ‘Destined to win’ by Soji Omotunde; ‘The man marches on’ by Jones Arogbofa; ‘My Stepping Stone’ by Jossy Nkwocha; ‘Catch them young through the energy vision’ by Daniel Anikor; ‘Olaitan Oyerinde’ by Lois Otse Adams and ‘A combatant at war’ by Utibe Ukim, Emmanuel Ukpong and Adeola Fadairo.

 It was a great outing as we later descended on the Ijebu garri and dealt with it mercilessly. Readers are leaders and that is what we are doing at the CRIMMD Free library since 2004
