“The government wants the youth to be enticed to spend more time in libraries than other places that are not fruitful to the youth’s future,” said Nkosi.

The library boasts a built-in studio recorder, high-speed internet and Wi-Fi access, a vibrant space of activity for locals, and a gaming section.

It also provides leisure to study materials with sections for adults, children, and ICT, which have access to e-books, among others.
