Public librarians who have completed training-of-trainers programmes organized by the EIFL Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) and partners in Kenya, Namibia, Uganda and Zambia are invited to attend this informal knowledge sharing event - a ‘T-break’, where T stands for trainers - on the topic, 'Public Library Innovations during the COVID 19 Pandemic'.
Three public library trainers from Kenya: Mary Kinyanjui, Jemmimah Maragwa and Yusuf Ganyana Juma will share their experiences of using online training methods to help students revise their school subjects, to support digital reading at home and to nurture young writers in their communities.
This is the second in a series of virtual ‘T-breaks’ organized for the public library trainers by EIFL-PLIP. The aim is to refresh the trainers’ knowledge, share practical experiences and to build a local and cross-border support network of public library trainers. Since 2017, EIFL has trained 62 public librarians in Kenya, Namibia, Uganda and Zambia to become trainers, and they have cascaded the training to over 650 librarians in their countries.
