Libraries closed due to COVID-19

Reading in Kitengesa library, Uganda
Reading in Kitengesa library, Uganda

Thanks for your support of this project over the past months. As you might imagine, the COVID-19 virus has been put a hold on most library activities. Libraries in Burkina Faso, Ghana and Uganda have been closed following recommendations of local authorities.  One of the last activities done in Burkina Faso was to create a book about COVID-19 and how to prevent the spread of the virus. The book was distributed to the last visit to villages in Tuy province mid-March. Instead of reporting on recent activities, then we have a selection of photos from the last month (February) when libraries were open.  We are looking forward to eventual re-opening of libraries as soon as prudent.
