A library can play a unique role in changing the lives of readers within a community. But without access to the right books, it can’t fulfill this role.
Libraries, e-Reading, Activities, and Partnership (LEAP) brought digital reading to all 61 public libraries in Kenya. The project was launched to improve access to books for readers across Kenya and position libraries as major contributors to Kenya’s development.
