Additionally, ACC TRUST has organised a two-day workshop for headmasters and librarians from government and private schools to brainstorm on ways to improve the quality of existing libraries and how they could improve reading habits among students. At the end of the two-day workshop, all the learnings and suggestions will be compiled and handed over to the district administrator for their consideration and action.
