WORKSHOP: How to Build a Community Library

Today and tomorrow I'll be giving a workshop on how to build a community library at the Namibia Book Fair! The workshop will provide guidelines on how to collect suitable literature and display books, and manage access to neighbourhood libraries. It also aims to inspire volunteer librarians with tools on how to engage readers including starting book clubs, hosting public readings and using themes. It is FREE and open to youth, community leaders, parents and reading advocates.

Thursday 1 October 17.30 - 18.30 @ the Franco-Namibian Cultural Centre (118 Robert Mugabe Ave) with one of Namibia's most dedicated librarians Mariet Hayes from the Greenwell Matongo Community Library in Katutura. 

Friday 2 October 13.00 - 14.00 @ the Polytechnic of Namibia library (c/o Brahms & Haydn St Windhoek West) where I hope to engage with students. 

 The Namibia Book Fair is organised and initiated by the amazing Helvi Itenge Wheeler of Yambeka Education Trust.
