Book Bunk

Book Bunk is an independent organisation based in Nairobi that restores existing public libraries and installs new libraries in public spaces. They imagine that public libraries can be steered to become more than just repositories, acting as sites of knowledge production, shared experiences, cultural leadership and information exchange. They see them as sites of heritage, public art and memory. Book Bunk’s formation as an entity is inspired by this core belief – that our shared spaces are more essential than ever to our collective Kenyan imagination.
