Observations This library is a new project located in the Kasarani slum. It is in real need of more books which will benefit many. This is an initiative by the founder, Douglas Ng’ang’a Muthoni.

Mr Muthoni works part-time at the library and the rest of the time he works as a driver. A good portion of his income go directly to support his library project. What a great local initiative which could use some encouragements.
