Apeejay Anand Children’s Library is one of the many Education Support Program run by Apeejay Surrendra Group. It was incorporated in 1992 in Park Street Kolkata with the prime objective of attracting children of the neighbouring slums into a positive and stimulating learning environment. The success of the Park Street library was reason for us to start a second one in Kolkata, in Apeejay School, Salt Lake. While Teachers and Students of Apeejay School volunteer to teach the kids in Kolkata, it is to our delight that inspired Apeejay employee volunteers in Chennai have created a Library in a School operated by an NGO in their city. With first batch of books donations from Oxford Bookstore, Chennai , the Apeejay Anand Children's Library, Chennai was opened to children on Dec 23rd 2012.
AKLF 2013 has pledged to build a Book Bank to increment the reading material for the 90 Children who will use this Library. We request you to bring at least one book for children of class I – VIII and drop it in the Collection Boxes placed at all event venues and at Oxford Bookstore throughout the duration of the Festival.
