A lot of reports have being written about the breakdown of the Sumbrungu Library Tables and Benches. In fact, even though some minor maintenance have being done, there is still that need for new chairs and Tables to be replaced.
On last Monday night, the Sumbrungu library with its few tables and chairs could not accommodate its library users. The attendance was so high such that some of them left and was hanging within the Women's Center doing their reading. Most of them were students from Kublia JHS who were given home work to do and they came to use the library text books for references. The other people were students from the polytechnic year three accountancy who also wrote their mid-semester exams and it was cancelled three times by their lecturer and they were not informed again on the day of the exams. The lecturer only asked them to be preparing for any time he wishes to. According to one Nyaaba Vida, a member of the Class who was also in the library said Tuesday morning 7:45am was his period and he could make them write it.
I was sad when I interacted with some of the students and they were complaining about the shortage of furniture in the library. Some of these questions were coming in my mind. What can I do to solve this problem? If I were one of them what would I do? I then advised some of the J. H. S students to go home so that their seniors the few furniture available and also to avoid noise.
I have also just detected that; there are adverse effects of the presence of the Drinking/Chop Bar near the library. This is especially to the kids under age 10-15 years. As they come to the library, they see people eating and drinking around and many of them as minors as they are never pay attention to their studies and even the girls are at the risk of fallen prey to the B- poly students who buy them some alcohol or food.
