Can a Western literary library model work in a sub-saharan African context? Does the book donation model widely supported by international donors and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) achieve its aims of improving literacy. Join Johanna Anderson to learn more about her research working in a school library in Malawi in 2008.
Johanna works as a Subject Librarian at the University of Gloucestershire. She is also co-founder of Voices for the Library and her dissertation entitled 'Library Aid to Developing Countries: A case study investigating how a Western literary library model is integrated into a Sub-Saharan African oral culture within the Malawian primary education system' received the Library and Information Research Group (LIRG) Student Award in 2010.

They are open to all and absolutely free. Light refreshments are served which is why we ask you to let ILIG know you are coming by emailing Alice Tyler: [log in to unmask] by 9th April. Thank you. We look forward to seeing you.
