The school library as a community project

We are what we are and what we read

The pictures today show the future “heart” of the school: the school library. The teachers and students of the Diospi Suyana School have the dream that the empty shelves can be filled with an inventory that covers all departments from A for “Algebra” to Z for “Zoology” for the different age groups. The library will by a place where students enjoy reading, and will offer a wide range of general education, as well as the opportunity to find real research. About 80% of the books will be available in Spanish, 10% in German and 10% in English, as well as a smaller department of books in Quechua. Initially, a reference collection will be established, which teachers and students can access here on the school campus. If family conditions allow, children should be able to take books home in the future. Considering the fact that our school is not connected to broadband internet, printed media are extremely important.
If you would like to support us in building the library, you now have the opportunity to do so. By clicking on the button below you will be redirected to the wish list we created on Amazon: If you decide to donate one or more books, you can purchase them here.

The library in the making.

Now you might be wondering how one can equip a library with the 71 books found on the list. We will expand this list constantly, as this is only the beginning (In the future you can permanently find this link under the “School” heading.)

On the other hand, we have to buy a lot of books here in Peru, since not all titles in the Spanish language are available in Germany. For these books, director Christian Bigalke also seeks supporters in Lima.

By the way, Peru has its own plan for reading. Each school develops its own “plan lector” which determines how to make reading enjoyable for students. Additionally, the school decides which literary works the students will read each year. The Colegio Diospi Suyana also works according to its own plan. In the photo, you can see students in grade three, reading age-appropriate literature. As a transitional solution, most classrooms have mini libraries. These are used during breaktime and also to reward students who, for their fast and disciplined work, finish before their classmates. On behalf of our students and teachers, we thank you for your support. / Christian Bigalke
