The St. Kizito Library is Popular with Students!

June 1, 2018
In this blog post, discover the St. Kizito library and its impact on the 50-80 students it serves daily.

In February, we published a blog post about the donation of chairs received by the St. Kizito library in Gulu, Uganda. Sharon Ocwee Opio, a former St. Kizito student, donated the chairs. These chairs were very appreciated since the St. Kizito library is a popular place to access textbooks and books to read for pleasure. It welcomes, on average, 50-80 students daily. Students come to read, study, research, and participate in discussions.

The library has close to 400 books, with many considering it to have the best selection in Gulu. One must understand that most schools have a limited number of textbooks and the majority of students cannot afford personal copies. The St. Kizito Library makes textbooks available for students to use at the library. All books are available for use in the library; no books get taken home. Each day, the library is full of students, all deeply engaged in their studies. The library serves St. Kizito scholars and welcomes other students as well.

The two photographs posted with this article show the multipurpose hall (above) and the book selection area (below). The St. Kizito Foundation is very grateful to its donors for their generosity which makes the library and learning possible!
