Education That Extends Into The Community
Christopher In The Nyaka Library
“I would like to thank the Nyaka Library for the opportunity it gave me to use its books and space for free. As a student, I cannot afford to pay for the services I use at the library. Many days during lockdown, due to COVID-19, I could not physically attend class, but that did not mean my education had come to an end. Instead, learning at the library gave me more time for personal studies to research through community discussions. Whenever I didn’t understand something or couldn’t find information, the librarian was always there as a resource.
During our individual studies, students from Kambuga Sub County are very privileged to have a well stocked library. As a student taking science subjects, I was able to find relevant books which were not even at my school’s library. Through reading accessible books, I was confident that I would pass my examinations despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through coming to the library, I have been able to learn more new things and meet new friends through discussion groups. These friends were helpful because they could learn from me as I was also learning from them.
The Nyaka library is such a large part of my success as a student.”
