ALADIN sponsored the attendance of ALADIN member Moses Mwandihi (Kenya National Library Kisumu) at the ADEA Triennale (Dakar, Republic of Senegal, 14 - 17 March 2017) to share his rich knowledge in setting up reading tents for families and children. Promoting the importance of books and reading for enhancing literacy skills at the ADEA Triennale has been one follow-up activity of a workshop on "How Libraries support National Literacy Efforts" (UIL, April 2016). To prepare for the ADEA Triennale, a representative of the ADEA Working Group on Books and Learning Materials worked in September 2016 at the UIL Library, together with the ALADIN coordinator, on a policy presentation, which advocates for books, reading and libraries.
