The Takoradi library is to be reconstructed to help inculcate the habit of reading in school children in Sekondi/Takoradi and its environs.

Captain RTD Anthony Cudjoe, Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Chief Executive has cut the sod for the commencement of the project at Takoradi in the Western Region.

He said the two-storey facility would have a 400-seating capacity, an amphi-theatre, restaurants, Information Communication Technology Centre and office spaces for rent to individuals and companies.

The MCE said the ultra-modern library would be disability friendly with the provision of two elevators to connect the first and second floor.

Mr. Franklin Kenneth Kwarshie Dzigbede, the Metropolitan Director of Education said education was key to realising the development agenda of the people.

He said the library complex was, therefore, a great move in developing the minds of young ones to become critical thinkers who could contribute positively to the growth of society.
