Six African Countries
#libraryselfie2019 – a project that is organized by Library Aid Africa in partnership with the Goethe-Institut – will kick start in six African countries this August!
The online initiative, which started in 2018, uses social media to create awareness about the importance of libraries as spaces for reading and learning in six African countries, namely: Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, and South Africa.
How to participate:
- Take a selfie in any library located in your town
- Upload it on your Twitter, Instagram or Facebook account with the hashtag #libraryselfie2019
- Mention/ tag Library Aid Africa and your location (city & country) to facilitate tracking
The three libraryselfies with the highest likes in each country will be selected and awarded a prize! The winners of #libraryselfie2019 will be announced by the end of September. They will receive their prizes - a membership card to a public library, a movie ticket and a goody bag – during a Prize-giving Event that will take place in a public library close to them in the second week of October.
