A tale of two libraries

In a world of finite library space and a pressing need to offer all our students the most up to date books to read, we regularly withdraw old editions to replace them with new.  Rather than throwing our old, unwanted books away, they are finding a second life in Uganda, where Joseph Kahuma is using them to help set up a small library and higher education support centre.  This library of second-hand books will initially support a skills development programme and services will to expand with the growing collection.  We are looking forward to more news of the growing education centre over time.
