Bangalorean Spring: Library Adventures in India

February 7, 2013

From January to April 2013, I  have the privilege of working with the Hippocampus Reading Foundation in Bangalore, India as a library research intern.

The Hippocampus Reading Foundation, founded in 2004, is an organization that works to inspire and encourage children from disadvantaged communities in India to read. Hippocampus does this by developing partnerships with local community groups and organizations, setting up active libraries, and through the GROW By Reading program.

Along with another Master of Library and Information Science student from the University of Western Ontario, I will be working to develop and execute a marketing strategy to help Hippocampus reach out to a greater number of low cost schools and not for profits to libraries in India. My adventures will be posted weekly to another blog called “Out of the Stacks: An MLIS India Internship.”

I am excited to learn about international librarianship and look forward to sharing all of my library adventures with you!
