Bibliobus Ishyo

For the public aged from 3 years and above 

 

The bibliobus is a 15 long meter mobile library carrying thousands of books and traveling with librarians and professional storytellers to schools, centers, festivals in the country.  These librarians, storytellers and comedians reenact stories from books presented to the public. By bringing these stories to life, and in music, they create a lively world for students to see how messages conveyed through words in Kinyarwanda English andFrench; can be transformed in theater scenes, capable of drawing their attention to a world with which they may not be too familiar. This bibliobus has recently toured in almost 10 primary schools in Northern Province for the very first book festival in Rwanda during February 2015. The activities duration is maximum 1 hour 30 minutes.
