Mayor of Djibouti Hussein Abdillahi Kayad signed an agreement Monday (January 27th) with Director of the French Institute of Djibouti (IFD) Dominique Richard to develop the city's municipal library, the Djiboutian Information Agency reported.
Under the agreement, IFD will provide theoretical and practical training in library management on a weekly basis. Training will cover cataloguing of documents, collection maintenance, public services and all other skills necessary for the proper management of the library.
The municipality is expected to maintain the upkeep of the library facility.
The library is the only structure of its kind in Djibouti and is stocked with 2,800 books for adults and youth previously donated by IFD.
