November 10, 2011 – Sapele, Delta State.
The “1000books in 40days” book drive is a book donation initiative
that seeks to begin the process of equipping the Sapele Public
Library. d-xtreme unit foundation decided to undertake an upgrade of
the library since we realize the strategic importance of books and a
conducive reading/learning atmosphere to the youths, who are the next
generation of Nigeria’s leaders.
The Sapele Library has been in existence for almost two decades but
has not received any attention from government in over a decade, the
last time it received any sort of touch was last year,2010 when
d-xtreme unit foundation undertook a make-over that included clearing
of the surroundings, painting of the entire complex and fixing of
electrical fittings. We have a situation where the library is not
beneficial to school pupils, secondary school students ,
undergraduates or the public that it was set up to serve. We always
criticize the dearth of a reading culture among the youths but what
about reading tools and conducive atmosphere?
Our 40day target (November 10 – December 20) is to raise at least a
thousand(1000) units of books and allied materials. Books for kids,
primary and secondary school pupils, undergraduates and graduates are
our emphasis. d-xtreme unit foundation have so far raised over two
hundred(200) books but seek a broader participation, so we are
appealing to individuals and corporate organisations to team up with
us. There is no limit to the number of book(s) you can donate.
Whatever form individuals or companies desire is totally acceptable
e.g. branded books, specific subjects-like kids books, etc.
These are our contact for sending donations. Thank you!
