On 19th March 2018, Nairobi Area Library organized a Baby Parent Club meeting at the Library’s Junior Section. The party was attended by over 70 Children, 30 parents and Nairobi area library staff. The party is organized by parents, who contribute to foot the budget. The parents also use their contacts to secure places/organizations for the children’s visits and outdoor activities. In the next quarter, the club members will visit the UN Offices at Gigiri. The parents hold meetings with the library staff to strategize on the best way forward.
