Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling School Library

Help fund 1,000 children's books for the Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery School Library

Young monks at the Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery School receive traditional monastic teachings while also studying a modern curriculum. The secular dimension of their education empowers them to navigate, and ultimately help, the world beyond the monastery.

Young monks with children’s books in Tibetan

To this end, Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling is expanding the Children’s Library at the Monastery School. More literature for our young monks is being provided in Tibetan, English, and Nepali.

  • Tibetan language books help young monks of Tibetan heritage retain a connection with their mother tongue through age-appropriate storytelling; these books also improve the language skills of monks whose native language is Nepali.
  • The Nepali books introduce children to literature, concepts, and vocabulary relevant to living in Nepal.
  • English books introduce our young monks to a globally spoken language that will allow them to understand and ultimately help the wider world.
Learning new skills

Currently, a small library occupies just a corner of the Monastery School. We are expanding this library from a hundred books to at least one thousand. An average children’s book costs about $15.

Story time

With your help we can create a comfortable and joyful space where our young monks can develop their creativity and storytelling, empowering them with learning resources and enhancing their proficiency in three different languages.
