Library Project

The CLS Library Project fosters improvement of literacy in the Chumkriel community, encouraging students to enjoy reading independently. Books in both Khmer and English are available to all members of the Chumkriel community.

CLS also works closely with government school libraries in Chumkriel and Ang Prey to support literacy and encourage reading. Books are organized by level – beginner, medium and hard. Reading is encouraged by various strategies including free reading, reading events, and a book club where a group of students borrow the same book, read it, then return to discuss it with each other and with the teacher.
