Tablets have been used in a pilot programme by Book Aid International for reading in the Children’s Corners in a number of Kenyan libraries. Tablets encourage use of the library’s resources; and the children soon develop digital skills that will be of use to them in later life.
The Director visited a library in Kisumu where 30 tablets had been acquired with preloaded apps on maths, puzzles and language games. The tablets are used alongside books as part of a broader programme to include debating and live story-telling.
