Children’s Library Of Sunyani Abandoned In A Horrible State

The Brong Ahafo children’s­­ library complex and playing ground in Sunyani has been abandoned since 2012. The state of the library complex is now in the total horrible state. The library was been shut down due to severe roof leakages which didn’t auger well for studies the then regional Liberians said.

The Sunyani children’s library with serene learning environment was among the seven regional libraries been constructed in the country by the late Prime Minister, Professor Kofi Abrefa Busia to boost children’s interest in reading.

The then Brong Ahafo regional children’s library had the seating capacity of 50 where pupils used to run shift in their studies.

The then regional Liberian said, he was been compiled to close down the library and relocate them to the Sunyani regional library to prevent their books and others documents from deteriorating.

The abandoned children’s library is now completely dejected while their playing ground is now managed by insane persons.

The Brong Ahafo region has 6 government libraries and 20 other communities’ based libraries.

The Sunyani regional children’s library now belonged to history as weeds have covered the entire edifice.

The Sunyani adults’ public library which also started about 15 years ago by the former president John Agyekum Kufour to date has not seen completion.

It looks like all is not  lost, the MCE of Sunyani municipal Hon. Owusu Banahene Augustina after been hinted by the Nkyeremu News team did not hesitate but accompanied us to the scene and  gave assurance that she would team up with the traditional chiefs and other stakeholders to revamp the eye sore children’s library.

The sad news is that, at every dry season the whole place is set on fire to destroy the beauty of the playing grounds and the serene environment of the library.

The question is where were the people in authority when the library started deteriorating? Ghana!
