e-Ananse: Where African stories come to life.

e-Ananse is a new model of public library, deeply rooted in Ghanaian, black and African culture. Currently offered in three locations in Accra, the e-Ananse libraries seek to revitalise Ghana’s reading and story-telling culture by improving literacy and providing young people access to high-quality, contemporary literature.

The libraries feature an extensive collection of works by African writers, in addition to smart technology hubs giving library members access to a range of online literary resources.

Each library offers a unique combination of print books, state-of-the-art computing facilities, and live literature events, all celebrating Ghana’s pride in its African heritage.
