LIBRARY & READING


We donate carefully selected, high- quality picture books, novels, and nonfictions. We renovate library space to make them inviting. We

catalogue books and deploy digital library management system. We train teachers and students to be librarians. We promote book corners

in classrooms. We help teachers organize reading activities. We demonstrate within campuses and communities. Through such

comprehensive support, we ensure that libraries remain open regularly and books are used effectively so that reading in and out of the

classroom can become an integral part of student life.

VOLUNTEERING


Each year, we recruit volunteers from both China and abroad. After four weeks of online training and three days of training camp,

volunteers travel in teams to library sites to work for about a month. While on the site, our volunteers open up libraries and implement

circulating practice that is suitable for the schools' specific conditions. They also work closely with teachers to design and run reading

activities and promote reading both in school and in the wider community. We also recruit volunteers in metropolitan areas to serve in

migrant communities, where they run regular reading activities for migrant children.

TEACHER TRAINING


Teachers from our sites across China are annually invited for days of training in library and reading. During training, rural teachers work

together with domain experts and Dream Corps organizers to share experience and learn from each other. Besides introduction to small

library management and children's literature, much of the training is devoted to practical methods for providing guidance and support for

students in sustained silent reading, in reading aloud stories, etc. Through many immersive, hands-on sessions, teachers come to be

equipped with skills for organizing effective reading activities.
