It's almost complete! The LLC is gorgeous!

The LLC is Gorgeous!

There's been a buzz in Wamunyu.  "Look at that new big building at Kenya Connect?"  What's it going to be?  It's beautiful!"

We are very pleased to report that our Library Learning Center (LLC) is almost complete. As the new building grew, we realized that the LRC Annex was not an apt name so we changed it to include the Library in the title since it's an essential component. The exterior work is almost complete and all the painting has been finished inside. The contractor is putting on the final touches and we are expecting to take occupancy in April!

As you will see in the pictures, the building has beautiful features and was designed for good airflow and access.  As the structure and painting of the building is being completed, carpenters are busy building bookshelves for the Library. Our staff is selecting inspirational quotes to paint on the library and maker space walls.

Meanwhile, we have schools in the U.S. and beyond raising money for our Steps to Reading program.  Any school, inidvidual or group that raises $1000 will choose a spine of a book to be painted on one of the 53 steps in the building. Our goal is not only to have the building be functional, we want it to inspire our community to be lifelong readers and learners!

The entire team at Kenya Connect knows that this building is as a result of friends and donors making generous donations to make this project become a reality. Thank you for your contribution in creating the FIRST library and makerspace in our subounty and for helping Kenya Connect to expand our robust enrichment and empowerment programs!
