Aimee’s Library and Recreational Centre organises spelling bee, games for children
The 2020 World Book Day was celebrated March 5 by veteran comedian, Mr. Atunyota Akpobome, aka Alibaba and others in style at the opening of Aimee’s Library and Recreational Centre.
The event held at Edu-Lounge, Shangisha, Magodo in Lagos.
It was, indeed, a family affair, as parents, children and well wishers gathered for a tour of the lounge, which is set to host book clubs, private tutoring, diction and steam hubs, activities for children aged five and above with a modern library, game hub, reading and learning lounge, as well as a studio for public speaking and creative writing.
The Creative Director, Amy Afebuame, said: “We are on a mission to create a hospitable, physical and virtual environment for all-inclusive learning, research and recreation. Our vision is to become Africa’s most influential, innovative and creative educational resource and recreational centre. Over the years, we have endeavoured to make impact, grooming kids of diverse learning backgrounds, by building their creative and cognitive skills.”
She explained that Aimee’s Library came into being by hosting book clubs for children of different learning backgrounds in a bid to groom them into smarter kids, who are able to withstand international standards.
Aimee’s Library hopes to achieve its dream, given the fact that reading culture is lacking among Nigerian children.
She said: “We acknowledge that there’s a place for proper education, but beyond that, we engage kids in extracurricular activities outside of the four walls of the classroom. Soft skills are also passed on to build their self-esteem, leadership abilities, confidence and public speaking…”
Aimee’s Library and Recreational Centre hosts the yearly Spelling Bee and Board Games Competition for children not older than 13.
