KEY’s turnkey libraries are created after carefully considering the specific interests, attributes, and needs of the school’s students, teachers and wider community. Some KEY libraries are made from refurbished shipping containers, while others are new-build libraries or renovated spaces turned into libraries. Each library is outfitted to ensure a safe, clean, and comfortable environment that promotes learning, positive values and education for democratic citizenship. Critical to the success and sustainability of the program is KEY’s operational approach, which helps engage children, teachers and the community in the long-term stewardship of their library and its effective and sustainable use. After handing over the library, we stay in touch to follow the library’s general use and its impact on teaching quality, the children and their community.
