Future for Farato Children's Library
Built in 2012, the Library is the heartbeat of the village.
If the doors are open, the library is filled.
The "Swarm (preschoolers), watch educational videos and play with readiness materials. Students take advantage of the electric lights for homework. The library hosts village meetings and crafts sessions for the mothers. And it's the home of hundreds of lovely books.
Future for Farato is planning to add a satellite dish to the library. High school students need internet access for their classes. Because a connection is expensive for most families, this free connection will assure our kids can compete with others.
In January 2020 visitor Dean Kupstas headed up the reconstruction of our library roof.
Most of our collection was destroyed when the roof blew off in the rainy season of 2019. The sturdier roof will better protect the new books.
