Developing Public Library Systems

Analysis of Uganda’s existing public library system as well as demographic analysis of the regions in which the system has developed.  The diagrams focus on two major conditions in the country: the rural and the urban library with the major difference between the two systems being the delivery of information.  Urban libraries operate in a manner traditional way by providing a central location which must be visited in order to gain information [by checking out books, reading periodicals, newspapers, etc].  The rural system operates through “book drops” which delivers books to a central location in the rural environment from which patrons can pick up and bring home the information they need.  Success of the two different systems can be measured by the changing literacy rates over various age groups.
