KUWADZANA library, which has been under construction for more than two decades, has finally been completed.
Harare City Council spokesperson Michael Chideme yesterday confirmed the latest development.
“There were challenges which we have now overcome so the challenges are now in the past and we are concentrating in the future which is the opening of the library sometime next week,” said Chideme.
He said the library will have internet connectivity and will be open to everyone.
“We are looking forward to the public enjoying the services of the library.
“The library will be connected to the internet, so we will have computers in the library so that people can actually do their research and we will always have E-books in the library,” Chideme said.
Chideme said the library has a children section, so that children in primary school can actually enjoy using the library.
“The library is for everybody, it’s a composed library to benefit the community and its part of our drive to decentralize services to the people, and we bring such facilities closer to the people so that people can enjoy different services to where they stay,” said Chideme.
He also confirmed that there was another library being constructed.
“There is another library being constructed in Glen Norah, and we are also looking at revamping the existing libraries so they match our world class vision by 2025,” said Chideme.
“We will be pioneering the e-library concept in high density locations and we will be providing free wifi to the students.”
Chideme said they were appealing for reading materials in their libraries so that they have up to date reading materials.
