Library Work Study Programme: Experiences from the Students

During the January-April 2016 Semester, the Library hosted eight students from different departments for the work study programme. Funded by the Technical University of Mombasa, this programme provides opportunities for needy students to work within the university and raise funds to supplement their fees. In addition, students learn practical work skills which they can apply later when they join the labor market.

In a luncheon organized at the end of the Semester by the University Library in their honour, the students shared their experiences noting that the library had given them a rare opportunity to learn things they never knew before about library work.
