2003: EXPERIENCE CENTER

The HIPPOCAMPUS LIBRARY and EXPERIENCE CENTRE offers a space conducive to reading and was designed specifically for this purpose. The Library boasts of over 15,000 books exclusively for children with additions made to the collection each month.
Every possible route is explored to get children excited about the joys of reading – including authors/ illustrators/ storyteller interactions, book picnics and read-aloud sessions for the younger children, author, and book-themed parties, and so on.
Hippocampus hosts field trips for schools wherein the concept of a fun library is showcased – this is an important step to encourage children to visit a library. The schools have the option to specify a theme around which the session can be designed.
Each weekend Hippocampus offers a 1-2 hour activity for children of different ages. This includes activities like art and craft, fun writing workshops, field trips, topical celebrations like festivals, important world days and so on.
The library has just introduced one-on-one assisted reading sessions for early and emergent readers.
The concept of a Home Library was introduced in order to bring books to children living far from the library. Members just need to fill up a dream list of books they want to read and Hippocampus delivers it to their doorstep. More recently, Hippocampus has been experimenting with setting up smaller libraries in distant locations. Currently, there are 2 locations added – on Cunningham Road and Banaswadi (both in Bangalore). This way children can still visit a library space without spending too much time traveling.
