The Library Project
Since 2006 we’ve been improving rural children’s literacy in Asia. This is our story.
My name is Tom Stader and I’m the Founder of The Library Project. This is our organization’s story, through my eyes.
I have broken this up into four key periods from The Library Project’s journey so far.
A Simple Idea (2006)
Finding Our Way (2007-2008)
Taking Risks (2009)
One Million Books (Today)
It’s important to tell the story and understand the values we hold and what we are trying to achieve. Perhaps through our story we can motivate others to get involved, to understand that to make an impact is something that is achievable.
The Library Project donates local language libraries to improve children’s literacy. Children gain access to a beautiful school library providing fun and interesting children’s books that spark their imagination and promote a lifelong love of reading.
STEAM Classrooms Libraries
The Library Project donates local language libraries to improve children’s literacy. Children gain access to a beautiful classroom library providing fun and interesting children’s books that spark their imagination and promote a lifelong love of reading.
Literacy programs have one simple focus; to get children excited about reading. We see this as the second step to a library donation. Once a library is in place, it is essential to properly introduce children to a world filled with books.
All of our library donations have a teacher training component. This course covers how to properly loan books to students, how to use the children’s books in a classroom setting, and how to get the students involved in the maintenance of their library.
Where We Work
We work in rural communities in China and Vietnam. The schools we work with are underfunded and tend to be smaller in size, between 50-200 children in attendance. The size of a school matters in that it determines the amount of money local governments provide.
We’ve partnered with the local Board of Education at all of our library donations. It is essential to engage local government and support their future plans for their school district. These partnerships help us to push the teachers to meet our organization’s literacy goals at each of the schools we support.
Our five year vision includes expanding our programs throughout Asia.
Meet Our Team
The Library Project has an amazing team of full-time staff that tirelessly strive to improve education one book at a time. Our highly-dedicated teams located in Cambodia, China and Vietnam work together to create an organization that positively impacts the lives of underprivileged children. 100% of our program teams are locals. For this reason they understand the challenges that each country holds and are able to provide hundreds of libraries to rural communities annually.
How We Do It
From the ground up, dedicated and passionate TLP team members work closely with local governments, boards of education, local communities, teachers, students, volunteers, and donors. We strive to involve our volunteers and donors in almost every aspect of the donation, as transparency is a cornerstone of The Library Project. Our entire team is involved in every aspect of our library donations. A great deal of coordinated effort is involved with each of our library donations. All the team’s hard work is well-worth the tireless effort with just a single smile from a deserving child.
Our Approach to Governance
At The Library Project we believe our team has a voice in its internal governance. In 2010 we created the Internal Board of Directors made up of our organization’s internal leadership. Everyday this team work together to set the direction of the organization and also sits on many of our external boards as non-voting members. Their voice helps to strengthen our external boards relevance and to achieve a greater programmatic impact.
