From Paul Ayutoliya:
Kathy Knowles of Osu Children’s Library Fund paid a visit to CESRUD/FAVL Ghana libraries. They arrived at Sumbrungu on Monday the 22nd of November. She was accompanied by the new coordinator for the Kathy’s libraries in Accra, Madam Winifred Obeng Kyeremeh and their driver. Kathy is currently writing a book and wanted our views on our indigenous food among others. They visited the Sherigu and the Bolgatanga Regional Libraries. At the Sherigu library Kathy read the story of Ferdinand with some users.She took notice of the books the librarian sewed and was impressed about it, they learned from the librarian Miss Cecilia how to sew, they both practice right at the library and sewed one book each. In Sumbrungu, they helped us to reorganize the books in the library. Auntie Kathy led the children to draw any animals in their imaginations, all the beautiful drawings were pasted in our new reading hall. They also assisted us to take work out books from the shelves. On Tuesday before their departure to Accra, they visited the Bolgatanga market and took photos of millet, maize, beans, sweet potatoes, kenaf vegetables, Shea butter and other products. Though the stay at Sumbrungu was brief, we were honored to have them visit us.
