LIAZ commemorates 2023 World Book Day

Participants at the World Book Day
in Lusaka West
The Library and Information Association of Zambia (LIAZ) today April 24, 2023 joined the rest of the
international community in commemorating World Book and Copyright Day themed " Your World" with Lubuto Library Partners at Lubuto Mthunzi American Youth Library in Lusaka West. 

The event was characterized by several activities which included a library tour, storytelling, read aloud session with the children and the book talk session which was led by a local author and producer of Kasuba's Inner Safari Quest Ms. Bwalya Penza. Ms. Bwalya born in Lusaka and educated in England is an author, speaker and certified Adventures in wisdom coach, teaches children how they would thrive as they navigate their way through life. 

 Over 40 children attended the event and LIAZ members who were in company were excited to learn about good children literature through this visit. Key to mention is the idea of braille children’s books in the collection and the excellent children's classification system displayed in the library which makes it easier for children to locate their favourite books.
