This is in fulfillment of his promise as he is set to showcase his unwavering commitment to promote literacy throughout the length and breadth of Owu kingdom and by extension Nigeria.

Other dignitaries are
Permanent Secretary   Ministry of Education Science and Technology, 
Mrs Ogunleye, Director Library Services, Mr  Franklin Giwa,  Owu Chiefs, and many eminent personalities.

The event being championed by the Olowu  is another clarion call to revive old libraries and provide new ones that bring books closer to the people, thereby encouraging and increasing human capacity development in our locality and even nationally.

Unarguably, reading is an integral part of educational curriculum and personal development, therefore, a well-equipped library is a treasury house of knowledge for all. 

The statement adds that Owu Community Library (OCL) is equipped to serve children and adults which is ultimately going to be digitalised and upgraded to a level of an international standard at the new permanent site.
