In the spring of 2013, Kiwimbi established a physical presence in a building made available by Busia County. The Kiwimbi Community Center and Library is the first free public library in the county and has become a hub for the community. It welcomes between 200 and 500 visitors each day, both school children and adults, seeking educational tools and broader knowledge. Access to the Library is free, critical in this low-income area.
Many of Kiwimbi’s programs, such as the KCEP-Prep camps, operate here. The Library also contains over 20 e-readers with the texts of the Kenyan curriculum for Grade 8 students. With e-readers, internet access, magazines, over 20,000 volumes, a museum and art exhibits, the Community Center and Library provides an enriched environment for both students and townspeople – another key to learning.
