Angola: Foundation for Cazenga Digital Library Laid

The foundation stone for the construction of a digital library in the high density municipality of Cazenga, in Luanda, was laid Wednesday by the Minister of Telecommunication and Information Technology, José Carvalho da Rocha.

The facility will cover an area of 2,600 square metres, with a utility area of 1,800 square metres, entertainment facilities, garden and a reading hall with 3,000 books.

The digital library will also provide internet services on laptops and desktops, audio-visual rooms, film collection, videogames, study and group work rooms and others.

The works that will be undertaken by an Angolan construction company will last 13 months.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister José Carvalho da Rocha said he was implementing a direction from the head of State José Eduardo dos Santos, to build a large "knowledge shop" to serve all residents of the municipality.

According to him, more than words, the acts are proving that the Government is committed to addressing the youths' concerns and help upgrade the municipality of Cazenga.
