Through library collections, programs, and physical spaces, children learn to share, to be engaged in their communities, to participate in the arts, and to explore their immediate world and the world at large.

In a world without libraries, it would be difficult to advance research and human knowledge or preserve the world’s cumulative knowledge and heritage for future generations.

The numerous challenges in the industry can easily be addressed if all stakeholders work towards a common solution.

"Creativity does not wait for that perfect moment," Dr Ida Odinga said.

Patrons use the library to gain knowledge in order to create their own new and independent works. Increasing numbers of libraries provide spaces and services that meet the needs of people who want to learn.

The resources and services offered will create opportunities for learning, support literacy and education, and help shape the new ideas and perspectives that are central to a creative and innovative society.

However, more policymakers and government officials need to recognize this, and incorporate libraries into budgets and plans to build a culture of health and upwardly mobile communities.

 In a time when education is increasingly expensive, public libraries provide information and educational opportunities free for all people, regardless of their socioeconomic status.

"The Library will definitely give people the opportunity to do research and encourage creativity and innovation among the youths, "

CS Amb. Amina Mohammed said," The proposed Dr. Ida Odinga Library, Research, Innovation and Resource Center will empower the youth and open employment opportunities."
