Kitale's new public library shall officially open on 9 October!

Friday, September 5, 2008

Well, we are open at last! Thank you to those who have been brave enough to visit during our teething period! The coffee shop, super cyber, cinema, curio shop, tourist information and book exchange are all up and running. We also have information and donations basket for Njia Panda Ya Tumaini - a very worthwhile local charity. You can drop off clothes, shoes, tinned goods etc - anything that might be of use to a childrens' home. The library will hold its formation meeting on 14 September and we hope to open the doors as soon as possible thereafter. Anyone interested in promoting arts and crafts, worthy projects etc, please come and see us.

Opening Date

OK, 1 August was a little optimistic! We will officially open on 9 August. During the course of next week, our staff will be in training and we will be serving a limited number of customers to facilitate this. However, we ask folks visiting before the official opening to please be patient and bear in mind that many of our staff are untrained and have never worked before. We are trying to give them an opportunity they might never otherwise get.

The cyber cafe and cinema are running. For information on either, you can email . The library should be opening in September subject to support from local authorities and potential users. We need to show sufficient interest in the project to get support and donations of books etc and to this end, it is essential we sign up potential members as quickly as possible. This is a very valuable service for Kitale but to get it off the ground, we need YOUR SUPPORT! Email for information or pick up a membership form from Super Cyber or The Coffee Shop. Without adequate membership, we cannot get the libarary off the ground. We would also welcome donations of books or other useful items for the library, eg films, childrens' toys or games.

Hi! The Coffee Shop hopes and prays that its doors will open on 1st August! All are welcome! In the meantime, the Super Cyber and Cinema are open. Movies show at 6.30pm each evening with children's movies at weekend lunchtimes. The Super Cyber has the fastest connection in town, using a satellite link.
