The Nakuru Deputy Librarian Emily Moraa has appealed to students who are at home for the April holidays to utilize the well-stocked facility instead of loitering in town.
The officer said unlike in the past holidays the number of students using the library has dwindled from a record 800 per day to only 200 readers.
She assured the parents and students that since the library was re-opened in the month of February, after a long closure due to the covid-19 threat, the management has implemented all the required safety protocols.
However, she noted with concern that despite the implementation of the protocols the number using the facilities has reduced considerably, and yet it’s a much safer place for those bored at home to stay and widen their knowledge.
Moraa said the spacious and ultra-modern library that was opened in 2008 has three floors with large windows that enable sufficient air circulation. And, they have sufficient reading tables for social distancing, sanitizers, water and soap for handwashing.
The Librarian noted with concern that the number of students loitering in Nakuru town has increased instead of making good use of the well-stocked library to further their studies and stay safe.
Also, she said apart from primary and secondary school books the library has numerous novels, an American corner with fast internet and scientific journals. She was speaking to KNA yesterday during an interview at the National Library.
