Director's Message

Apr. 29, 2022 Anayo Ugboma

Please allow me to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the newly appointed Director of Library Services at Strathmore Municipal Library. I started working in this position on April 19, 2022, and I'm delighted by the warm welcome and support from the Board and staff.  I'm confident that collectively we can deliver high quality programs and advocate for library services in Strathmore. 

I have also had the opportunity to meet with a few stakeholders and partners in town and the Library will continue to partner with them to be a leading hub for information access in Strathmore. 

Here are a few things to know about me; I enjoy reading non-fiction and news and watching movies (Tik Tok) in my spare time.  I also write poems when exploring my creative side. 

Recommendations

  • Born a Crime by Trevor Noah - Born a Crime is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It is also the story of that young man’s relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother—his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life. 
  • Half of Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - From the award-winning author of "Purple Hibiscus" comes this masterly, haunting new novel, in which Adichie recreates a seminal moment in modern African history: Biafra's impassioned struggle to establish an independent republic in Nigeria during the 1960s.
  • Biko by Donald Woods - Biko is a biography about Black Consciousness Movement leader and anti-apartheid activist Steve Biko. It was written by the liberal white South African journalist Donald Woods, a personal friend of Biko. Donald Woods was forced into exile for attempting to expose the truth surrounding Biko’s death.
