A Non-Governmental Organisation, Private Schools.ng, has lamented the decline in reading culture among students and youths in Nigeria.

The body spoke in Port Harcourt on their planned mobile library for pupils in Rivers State during ongoing long vacation. The body noted that there is need to encourage youths to take reading seriously.

The founder of the group, Xolomon Uche, said students sometimes develop less interest in reading either when they do not have books to read, or have money to buy.

He said when launched, the mobile library would provide avenue for books for youths within secondary school age bracket, primary school children as well as unemployed youths to access books free for their studies.

Uche added that the mobile library would provide a platform where people can freely give books that they no longer need for people who need them.

He, however, urged scholars to buy into the drive by bringing readable books for the scheme in order to tackle the poor reading culture in the society..
