The Chief Executive of Book Aid International (UK’s leading International book donation and library development charity), Alison Tweed, has paid a visit to the African Heritage Research Library and Cultural Centre (AHRLC), the first rural community-based African studies research library on the African Continent located in Adeyipo Village, Ibadan, Nigeria.

The visit took place on Tuesday, 3rd March, 2020.

The epoch-making visit formulates an agenda of partnership and mutual collaboration between Book Aid International (UK) and AHRL(Nigeria), which will lead to a massive book donation to AHRLC and an establishment of a Children’s Reading Centre, by Book Aid, at Adeyipo Village.
The Director/Founder of AHRLC, Professor Bayo Adebowale, expressed satisfaction at the outcome of the meeting and hopes for an opportunity of training facilities and exchange agreements which will facilitate meaningful book promotion in Africa, the UK and the entire world.
Alison Tweed, in company of Victoria Okojie, of the University of Abuja, and Chief Emmanuel Oyegade (former Oyo State Library Board boss), were conducted round the six libraries at Adeyipo Village, by AHRLC’s Chief Librarian, Mrs. Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade and the Centre’s Secretary, Gbemisola Edun.

  1. Emmanuel Òsìndele says:I believe the library was established courtesy of Professor Adebowale and Yeye Akilimali Funua-Olade, who I fondly called IYABODE (Mother returned to her home base). May she live long for us. I foresee the time when The Adeyipo community will be the Nazareth of knowledge Or in local parlance “the black pot from where white pap is produced.” Thanks to all lovers of knowledge the world over.REPLY
