The library’s mobile service takes low voltage laptop computers to five schools in under-developed parts of Ho Municipality in Volta Region so that children can get hands on computer experience. The van is equipped with solar power to charge the laptops and wi-fi internet, and the laptops are pre-loaded with educational resources. In just one year (2012/13), the library conducted 105 computer lessons, giving 215 students the computer skills needed to pass the Basic Education Certificate Exam. This case study is based on impact assessment conducted by the library in 2013.
