>Monday 9th November – running reader friendly libraries, Puntland, workshop, day one

> And now for a repeat run of the workshop I delivered in Hargeisa last week. There are less participants this time with 10 school librarians taking part, plus librarians from a local community library and a teachers’ college. In contrast to Somaliland, all the librarians seem to be paid by their school so there is not the same lack of ‘incentives’ issue but they do not seem to have had much training. They are also quiter than in Somaliland but claim to understand me well enough so there is no translation into Somali. We therefore seem to race through the material until a few of the participants begin to struggle with the delights of the Dewey Decimal Classification System, where we shall begin again tomorrow …..
