At Library For All, we believe knowledge should be accessible to all, equally. This is why we create inclusive digital-first libraries. Our stories allow children to read in languages they understand and feature characters children can relate to.
Our work goes beyond traditional publishing methods, improving the lives of communities we work with. Providing training and development opportunities for local writers and ilustrators is one way we do this.
We’re dedicated to positively impacting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals..
How we deliver
We create libraries…
We have a unique curation and publishing process that rests on our curation pillars. These pillars are linguistic diversity, cultural relevance, age appropriateness and theme diversity.
..and provide independent learning software
Our Elevate app engages pre-school to second-grade students to learn reading and mathematics independently. An hour a day is enough to catch up on one year of school in 18 months.
…all delivered through robust, off line and off grid hardware
Spark is our offline, off-grid, portable digital learning environment in a box. Spark brings tablets loaded with books and learning resources to communities anywhere in the world. Each Spark Kit features a secure storage solution, in-built device charging and local Wi-Fi network.
Hear from our Specialist Librarian why culturally relevant resources are important
“We believe a combination of ‘mirrors’ and ‘windows’ should make a library. These provide opportunities for kids to see their own life experiences reflected in stories, as well as to look out and discover the rest of the world. But children in developing communities tend to have far more windows handed to them. They get used to reading stories about ‘other kids’-if, in fact, they have access to any books at all. That’s why we strive to help communities create more ‘mirrors’ for themselves.”
