New LSF Interns at Hatua Likoni

It was all smiles as our latest lot of form four candidates finished their last paper of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (K.C.S.E.) and rejoined the rest of us in life after high school. After four years of countless assignments and study sessions, these students can at last breathe a sigh of relief and take some time to regroup.
Not wanting to remain idle, our LSF graduates interned at Hatua Likoni - in the library department- for a period of one month. They helped with the accessioning, stamping, classification, adhering spine labels and cataloging of nearly 5000 books. These book are now ready to be put up in the library shelves and will be put to use by January 2012.
The high school leavers are also sharpening their computer skills by making good use of the computers made available by Hatua Likoni, that were acquired in November with the intention of encouraging the Likoni community to expose themselves to the digitized world.
