The Ministry of Culture, Youth and Community Development provides this service as it seeks to strengthen the role of libraries in the cultural development. The shared library service is looked upon as complementing services which enable willing libraries to take advantage of ministries expertise in developing and establishing libraries and developing their infrastructures.
