The idea of starting Bansa Library comes from The Community Library Project. TCLP is a low-cost, citizen-led initiative, and they have 4 working libraries in Delhi and Gurgaon. They are continuously working on the library movement, and they work in the direction of building public libraries which are accessible to all.
Two of our team members were volunteers at The Community Library Project, where they learnt how public libraries should function and how we can ensure maximum participation from children. They have an open source curriculum and they have developed different ways to help children who are initially slow at reading in building reading fluency.
