The Community Library Project (TCLP)
The seeds for The Community Library Project (TCLP) were sown in the early 2010’s with a read-aloud program conducted by volunteers, for children attending the Ramditti J R Narang Deepalaya Learning Centre in New Delhi.
At the center of the program was the idea that “Reading Is Thinking” – that everyone, regardless of their social or economic background, had the right to books and other tools of learning. In order to actualize this, one had to acknowledge the serious lack of free, community libraries in India that welcomed all, especially in those communities that had historically been left out (or actively kept out) of any discourse around books & reading.
Today, TCLP has set up 4 libraries in Delhi & Gurugram, catering to a membership of over 4000 children & adults, 7 days a week. We have also assisted several organizations in Delhi and beyond in creating free community libraries that welcome all.
The Reading Program has developed multi-faceted curriculum for first-generation readers from ages 4 yrs to 16 yrs, and includes daily read alouds by member leaders, volunteers and staff, the Reading Fluency program, Honour Roll, Poetry Workshops, Book Club etc. TCLP libraries are high-standard, low-cost libraries with an excellently curated (and regularly updated) collection of over 30,000 books in Hindi, English, Urdu and Bengali.
