Architecture

Donations received in 2021 will be channelled towards the full restoration of the Banda Street branch of the library. We’re upgrading it to digital facilities and collections, community gardens and green spaces, event spaces, a toilet block among other joys. Help us build the libraries of our dreams.

PROGRAMMES x EVENTS

We host a series of arts, academic and skills-based programmes and events that are available free of charge to library users. Due to COVID-19 mandated library closures in 2020 we converted this strand of our work into an activity pack distribution initiative that delivers reading and sanitation materials to the families resident around the libraries. In 2021 we’re working in a series of virtual programmes.

RESEARCH x INVENTORY

All our work is grounded in research. This department employs the most number of young library lovers who work tirelessly to sort through all the libraries treasures. In 2021, the inventory team will be working of acquiring collections for the new libraries and conducting our Library Ecosystem Research. The creation of a digitial library archive will also fall under this busy department.

PEOPLE X OPERATIONS

Support our ambitious team and the machine that keeps the Bunk going. This strand of our organisation is often the most challenging to raise resources for albeit the most critical for the successful delivery of all our projects. In 2019, Book Bunk provided employment to 30 Kenyans and taught skills to 68 others. In 2020 our projects provided livelihoods to 93 people. Our heaviest investment will always be in people. Help us pay our people.
