Recently we introduced you to Mzuzu library in northern Malawi. Mzuzu is one of five libraries in Malawi currently refurbishing a space which will become a Children’s Corner – a vibrant space in the library where children can read, play and learn. The team at Mzuzu library have already begun work on the transformation of their library.
Here’s a quick reminder of how the space looked before the project began.
Librarian Peter and his team started out by painting the walls of the space which will become the Children’s Corner. There are now brightly coloured walls, painted cupboards and shelving and murals on the walls.
Lastly, the team painted the exterior of the Children’s Corner so that the community can tell the Corner is there for them.
Peter, the Librarian at Mzuzu says:
The refurbishment is going on well and we are now done with painting and art work. Mzuzu Library will be now a conducive environment for reading for the children and the place is very attractive now. A lot of children have been coming to find out what the Children’s Corner is all about, the services we will be offering to them and they are very happy for the development.
Mzuzu Library Children’s Corner will officially open in September. Keep checking in for more updates!
