News from Kitengesa library

April 23 was International Book and Copyright Day, and the National Library of Uganda asked all the country's libraries to celebrate it in some way. At the Kitengesa Community Library, the librarian and library scholars organized an exhibition of the library's most popular books, and children from two neighboring primary schools were invited to come and visit the library. They stayed for two or three hours, all reading hard. Their teachers came too and promised to join the library. They had never visited it before, demonstrating how important it is to keep inviting people to come.
