The *iHub_ library is finally open

1 Comment

For a month or so we have been contacting our friends and partners to help set up a community library and it is with great pleasure that we are proud to announce that we have officially openned it up to the *iHub_ community.

The primary mission of the library is to provide access to materials and information to the *iHub_ community to meet their personal, educational and professional needs. The primary users of the library will be both the Green and Red members of the *iHub_ Community. The library serves as a source of instruction and assistance in the use of its resources.

The library occupies a small space on the Japan Area of the *iHub_ facility and it was only possible due to the generous donations from the friends and partners of the *iHub_.  The books in the library include some of the best programming, web design, mobile app development and business books around.  Other community members, like Wilfred Mworia, have already started to donate some of their books as well.  If you have any that are in good shape and relevant to today’s techies, we’d love to add them to the library.

We will be glad to accept your book donations all in good and in clean condition for our library. We also accept videos, audio books, DVDs and CDs. The entire *iHub_ community benefits from your donations and we are very grateful that you think of us; thank you in advance for your generosity.

To donate books, please contact the *iHub_ Community Manager at to get more info on how to donate.
