Architecture can change the dynamics of a community, but architecture only can’t create a community. A community needs something more than a physical space, it needs beliefs, a common characteristic or a common background. The Njoro Children’s Library aims to develop education and to involve children, parents, teachers, locals and international volunteers to come together to build a place where pupils can read and study. Working together not only reduce the costs of the construction, but creates a strong relation between people and the building and a communal responsibility for the maintenance of the building. The library was build with recycled and locally available materials. For the walls were used compressed earth blocks and concrete blocks found at an abandoned construction. The windows, doors and furniture were made with recycled wood used in the construction of the foundation and bond.
