Episode 4

How to actually build a library! In this episode, Wachuka begins by telling us about the process of creating the first-ever digital catalogue of McMillan Memorial Library. It took 23 people, 8,332 hours and loads of stickers! She also speaks with Dr. Henry Chakava, a publisher with the African Writers Series from Heinemann in the 1970s. Both of them converse on Nairobi and East Africa’s rich literary scene. Many of these authors’ books from the region will find a home in McMillan Library and its branches.
