Librarian Trainers Workshop

On August 16 and 17 our Canadian librarians partners held a workshop for more than 30 people who are working in the various community libraries across Rwanda.

They spent the days showing everyone the many aspects of running a library, including:

  • The importance of reading
  • How to effectively market your library to encourage new patrons
  • How to organize your library to maximize efficiency
  • How to develop library programs

The workshop was a huge success and everybody left with some ideas to take back to their libraries.  It was such a positive and uplifting experience for everybody involved.


Setting Up Libraries

The team spent many days at several different libraries helping to sort, organize, and shelve books that were generously donated by Grace Rwanda.  It was hard work but well worth all the effort.
