077 / Kalijambe Sragi, Pekalongan, Central Java – School Eco-Library
Mr. Bastiyan works in a school in the administrative department and as librarian at the same time.The library at the school has around 2.300 copies but they are mostly textbooks.
He says: “Students here are not excited about going to the library because the books are boring.”
The only way they have encouraged the students to love the environment so far is an annual competition, where they give an award to those who have the cleanest class in school. That way, students are motivated to bring small plants and put them in front of their classes and clean their classes as often as possible.
