Children Corner

To cultivate a reading habit, it is very necessary to do it at a very early age. Based on research, 50% of our lifetime learning happened between births to five years olds. Thus, to build any habits, including reading habits, it is necessary to do it at early age. In advanced countries, public libraries provide several services to promote early literacy, including storytime to babies and toddlers at the library spaces. Unfortunately children in developing countries do not have such opportunity.


As part of its effort in helping to promote reading culture in the country, the PUC Main Library set up a Children’s Corner which located inside the library. Through the funding from the American Corner, we have bought hundreds of children books and educational games to make them available for children to read at the corner or to check them out to read at home.


Children of all ages, including babies, can obtain a library card. Moreover, the corner provides storytime sessions to children under six years old every Sunday, except on PUC holidays.


Session I: 2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. - for specific children groups from NGOs

Session II: 3:00 – 3:45 p.m. – for children age three and under

Session III: 4:00- 4:45 p.m. – for children age four to five
Except PUC holidays.
