The “A Book from Every Heart Project” was initiated by the Provincial Directorate of National Education to increase the number of books in school libraries, introduce more books to students, and spread the culture of reading in society.
The 112 Emergency Service Team, which took action after being notified that there would be a transfer of books from the hospital, went to Çankırı State Hospital and put the books donated by the hospital staff on a stretcher, then put them in the vehicle and delivered them to the Karatekin Elementary School. The books, which were taken out of the vehicle on a stretcher, were handed over to the students.
The team from the Çankırı Fire Department went to the homes of citizens who reported donating books and used the fire truck ladder to reach the balconies and windows of the buildings. The teams took the books and brought them to the schools.
In one month, 32,000 127 book donations were received
Provincial Director of National Education Muammer Öztürk told Anadolu Agency (AA) that the studies carried out under the No School Without Libraries project initiated by the Ministry of National Education received wide support from society.
Noting that school libraries should be enriched in content and students should use libraries more actively, Öztürk explained that with the support of book lovers in the implemented project, 32,127 books were brought to school libraries in one month.
Noting that the project aims to double the number of books in school libraries, Öztürk explained that they inform those who wish to contribute to the project through social media, training meetings, letters and events.
At the beginning of the project there were 146,111 books in school libraries and today this number has reached 178,238. Today and tomorrow we will continue to teach our students that the smell of books gives peace of mind and we will try to introduce it to you.” used the phrase.
Öztürk stressed that they also conducted fire and ambulance activities to raise awareness of the project, saying:
“We wanted to emphasize that reading is just as important as living and breathing. Our teams are rescuing our locked books while our healthcare workers call out for 112 emergency books.”
