Osu Children’s Library Fund, Canada, and Osu Library Fund, Ghana, work in partnership with Ghanaian authorities and communities to develop and maintain a network of dynamic community libraries.
Since starting under a tree in 1990, OCLF/OLF has built eight freestanding libraries in the Greater Accra Region. These range from a 40-ft converted shipping container to a three-storey facility complete with a stage and hall.
