Libraries in Africa

I have an interest in what libraries are like around the world.  Recently, I've been reading up on the increasing proliferation of technology in African countries.  This connects those who live in Africa with other parts of the world, which in turn, allows people from these other parts of the world to provide Africans with the knowledge and resources that other, first world countries have in abundance.

Volunteers from around the world are contributing by helping to donate materials and money to help build libraries in African nations.  Some of these volunteers are even traveling to Africa to help in constructing the buildings and facilities that will be the future libraries that will be a significant part of the African community.

Here are some links that go into further detail about how libraries are helping those who are natives of Africa.
