Graduate seeks help rebuilding university library in Malawi

Mzuzu library after the 2015 fire

A graduate of the University's Information and Library Management degree programme, Felix P. Majawa was appointed University Librarian at Mzuzu University, Malawi in August 2015. Late that same year, in December, the library was tragically destroyed by fire.

Although there has been some press coverage of this disaster, (‘Rebuilding a Malawian library after disaster’, Library Connect, 10 June, 2016; ‘UNESCO gives a boost to Mzuzu University library’, Nyasa Times, 6 July, 2016), the library is still short of books and equipment.

Details of the trust fund for those that may be willing to help are:

Account Name:
