HISTORY OF LIBRARIES IN NIGERIA

Like the art of writing originated in the tropical and sub-tropical land of Africa and Asia.

It is known that the art of writing was first started in what is now western Pakistan and in the valley of River in dus approximately 7,00 years ago. From there it was probably carried to Samaria and Egypt. It was in Samaria (modern Iraq) that the first libraries were established. A library containing over 50,000 clay tablets existed in Suppara about six thousand years ago. There were in this city at the time a temple dedicated to sun - God and school facing the temple and there were libraries in each of the building. However, in Nigeria, during the Second World War reading rooms were setup all over the northern Nigeria to serve as public information centres.  Finally, in 1852, a Regional library was established in Kaduna as a Division of ministry of education to help the Native authorities develop the reading rooms into public library became a division of ministry of information.

IMPORTANCE OF LIBRARIES         

To inform citizen: There is no gain doubting that democracy and libraries have a symbolic relationship. Libraries make democracy work by providing access to information so that citizen can make decision necessary to give themselves. Also library, especially the public ones make knowledge and ideas available to all irrespective of age, race, creed, sex and economic status. Break down boundaries. Library got rid of the fence that obstruct our visions and abilities of inter-communication, association and self education. Public libraries provides free, family literacy programme for low literate, illiterate and non-English-speaking people. However, in the value of individual, library door are open for indepent thinking without pre judgment. Collection in libraries gives access to historical, cultural and political facts that are necessary to foster spirit of exploration. Finally, another important of library is that it preserve the past. Library keeps records as ready reference for all humanity of the past.

PROBLEMS OF LIBRARIES IN NIGERIA

Lack of planning at the national level: The federal government has had on a number of occasion expert advice on the setting up a national library at Lagos. Lack of backing from an energetic viable professional body. Since its inauguration in 1962, the Nigeria Library Association appears to have achieved very little professionals. Lack of suitable reading materials geared to the taste of people and commensurate with their level of education state poverty which hinders library expansion.Though poor world standard, one is safe in saying that library provision in the country at present is not good enough, other things remaining equal.

SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEMS

Lack of planning as one of problem mibinlting against Nigeria library development: The federal government should be able to establish national library headquarters in all the state. Lack of backing from on energetic viable professional body as problem of Nigeria library development. Government should employee qualified professional librarians that will carryout libraries routines effectively and simultaneously and also motivate librarians to make other people to have interest in the discipline of librarianship. However, problems of institution of all different types of libraries should try as much as possible to provide adequate fund which will be used in purchasing needed reading materials in library which will make the library cliental to meet up with their information need. In conclusion a modern is a social institution that anticipates the needs of its users and makes adequate provision to wards their fulfillment in terms of availability of materials and unreserved and unrestrained services. So, modern library is a social institution whose goals is to maximize the social utility of documents. It’s aim is to put the motto: “Books are for use” into practice.
