Students enjoying current newspapers With the help of local bus drivers and the Supervising Teacher of the library, Joram Mando, students and teachers now enjoy current newspapers every weekday. A variety or papers arrive each day highlighting current events as well as sports and entertainment from Tanzania and around the world.

Library Scholars Another new program implemented in the past few months has been the Library Scholars. These are students that assist Mr. Mando and Mama Grace with duties involving arranging and straightening books on the shelves. This duty is seen as a high honor for these kids.
