The Marcus Garvey Library

SHOFCO’s Marcus Garvey Library is a quiet safe haven for reading, learning, and working. Located on the bottom floor of the Kibera community center, our library houses over 1,000 titles and is open to the entire Kibera community.

The Marcus Garvey Library is also home to children’s story hour and SHOFCO’s coveted adult literacy classes. Acquiring literacy skills goes a long way towards addressing inequalities, as adults learn not only to read and write, but also to take control of their everyday lives through activities like banking, filling in forms, reading instructions, and voting.
