Observations This is a library which is currently moving to a new location. The new building is currently under construction.

Application comment: We were in a rented place until end March 2014 but we could not sustain the place because the money we generated from library membership and daily charges was far way below meeting all our rental, salaries and payment of bills. We closed the library, took a seven year loan facility, moved to our own plot of land a bit far away from town, and are in the process of constructing 23ft by 21ft library with the greater potential of being bigger if I get more funds of expansion. The library is expected to open its doors in two to three weeks’ time, most probably by the end of May.

The library under construction can accommodate 30 seats but there is a far bigger capacity outside, taking over 50 seats outside the building in a well-manicured outside compound conducive of reading and group discussions
