Starting June this year, Kenya is offering free internet to users in public libraries.This comes after Liquid Telecom Kenya and the Communications Authority of Kenya connect 46 branches of Kenya National Libraries.
Most of the Kenyan public libraries have added more computers for users in anticipation of the increased usage as people try to make use of the internet service.
Liquid Telecom Kenya CEO, Ben Roberts said “the demand for internet service is growing exponentially in kenya [and that] connecting the public libraries means everybody will now have access to digital online information, including e-government services, research, education services and employment opportunities.”
The library internet service is one of the plans of the Kenya government’s vision 2030 development strategy, with work now underway on a state of the art national library in community along Haile Salassie Avenue in Nairobi.
