Book Bunk Tours

Every 2nd Saturday of the month, The Book Bunk invites you to share your ideas about how libraries can serve as centres of engagement and foster public discourse. We will be hosting monthly tours of the McMillan Memorial Library tour and invite you to learn about the main library, its collections and branches as well as our restoration project. The tours are guided but the experience is casual and informal.

ABOUT BOOK BUNK: Book Bunk engages with public library spaces as sites of cultural heritage and public memory. We are focused on the complete restoration and programming for old public libraries as well as the installation of new libraries into public spaces. We imagine that public libraries can be steered to become more than just repositories, acting as sites of knowledge production, shared experiences, cultural leadership and information exchange for communities. Our flagship project is the complete restoration of McMillan Memorial Library and its branches in Kaloleni and Makadara, in partnership with the Nairobi City County government.

Every 3rd Saturday of the month, The Book Bunk hosts children's film screenings at McMillan Memorial Library's Makadara and Kaloleni branches as art of our storytelling programming for children.

Khumba is a half-striped Zebra who is blamed for the lack of rain by the rest of his insular, superstitious herd, except his dad, mom and Tombi. He embarks on a quest to earn his stripes and through interactions with others, begins to learn that diversity is essential for survival and that one's difference can, in fact, be one's strength. Directed and produced by Anthony Silverston, the film was made by Triggerfish Animation Studios in South Africa and won the Best Animation category at the 2014 African Movie Academy Awards
