A GH¢217,000 modern library complex has been inaugurated for the Nursing and Midwifery Training College in Sunyani.
The 150-capacity library complex, financed with the college’s internally generated funds, also consist of four offices for tutors and a business centre.
Reverend Alexander Adams, the board chairman of the college, inaugurating the facility last Friday, urged the students to effectively utilise it and help to maintain the structure.
He also charged the students and the teaching staff to handle the books with care so that it would benefit more prospective students.
Mr. David Amalba Ayinne, the principal of the college, observed that libraries contributed significantly to the growth and development of education and achievement of high academic excellence.
He, therefore, advised the students against relying solely on handouts and asked them to ensure the effective use of the facility especially at their leisure hours.
Mr. Ayinne noted that the library would not only spur academic and research work, but would also facilitate processes for the college to gain accreditation for the University College of Nursing.
