Maktaba library awards of the year (2014) were released. If you missed the list of winners then we’ve got it.
The 5th edition of the Maktaba library of the year award was organized by he Goethe-Institut, the Jomo Kenyatta Foundation and Kenya Library Association.
Over 70 libraries were competing for the top price and winning
libraries were awarded by considering their innovation, preservation of indigenous knowledge, application of modern ICTand promotion of local content.
