Turning Pages,
Changing Lives.

Books are hard to come by in Uganda.  Even the books used in schools are owned by the teachers and the children don’t have access to them outside of the classroom.  It is hard to become a good reader without reading material.  At Namanya Memorial Library (NMCL), books are more than pages; we believe that each story read, each lesson learned, and each dream kindled has the power to reshape futures.


Community Library

We are open to children of all ages within our community. 

Whether they want to read a book to have a broader perspective on life, catch up on missed classes or use our academic resources to do research for a school project, our library is there to provide a safe quiet and comfortable space for them to learn and grow in all aspects of their lives.


Library Activities

Our activities range from daily to weekly and monthly. We believe that children learn best when they engage in fun activities.

We currently have the following activities running at NMCL:

  • Computer lessons
  • Homework + research
  • Reading Lessons
  • Board game tournaments
  • Creative workshops
  • Spelling Bee
These activities are usually competitive and there is always a winner to be crowned.
