(30 hours rigorous training on reading techniques and knowledge management)
We have some senior readers who are expert in a particular field of their own. The junior readers or newbie’s take help from them as their reading mentors. They go through an intensive care with an expert reader and learn all the practical details of reading, reading methods etc.
In a usual reading internee program, a reader or a group of readers has to go through an intensive process of reading under the supervision of a serious reader who achieved a sort of mastery or expertise in reading and whereabouts of reading. The total thirty hours will of course not be without breaks! A reading internee should read 10 hours a day for 3 days at a stretch.
After this training the readers are supposed to make library their second home where they are expected to pass a significant amount of time.
