We have plans to open the library October 1, 2019. We are currently painting and working on furnishing the building and ensuring that upon opening the building is functional and safe for all the South Sudan public to enjoy. For interested supporters, volunteers, or for early access for our soft opening in August please email: to coordinate or send us a message through the contact us tab on this website.

Thank you in advance for your help and support, we look forward to opening our doors soon!

Kind Regards,
