Teachers can benefit widely from our selection of books, various teaching resources and educational materials in core subjects as well as various other subjects such as agriculture, health, environment, and technology. We also have plenty of reference materials for professional development.


The communities around the schools can also access the content on the digital library on their laptops, tablets or mobile phones.

Current Projects

Enhanced Accessibility in Learning

Sept. 1, 2022 - Dec. 31, 2023

The Enhanced Accessibility in Learning (EAL) Project, launched in partnership with the KDDI Foundation in September 2022, targets the enhancement of educational experiences for students with visual and hearing impairments across selected schools. This initiative, leveraging experiences from an earlier pilot, focused on advancing iOCR technology, converting 30 textbooks into accessible formats, and upgrading the accessibility of the E-Pustakalaya platform. In 2023, EAL dedicated its efforts to deploying these technologies and conducting specialized teacher training to nurture an inclusive learning atmosphere. The project aimed to seamlessly blend accessible content into the curriculum, enabling educators and students to embrace a more inclusive approach to learning and setting a precedent for inclusive education advancements.
