Our Libraries

Check out all the children’s libraries that Taman Bacaan Pelangi [Rainbow Reading Gardens] has stablished in remote areas of Eastern Indonesia.


Our Programs


Establish Children Libraries

We establish child-friendly libraries in remote areas of Eastern Indonesia. We work together with the local schools and transform their library into a child friendly learning environment that will foster the love of reading in each of the student.


Capacity Building Workshops

We provide a series of capacity building workshops for the local teachers that enable them to have the skills and knowledge needed in nurturing the habit of reading on their students and promoting literacy in their village.


Basic Literacy Course

In each of our library, reading activities are regularly conducted. Each class has reading activities weekly at the library, lead by the classroom’s teacher. Through reading activities, children will slowly grow the love of reading.
