Critical Commentary

AO: This article in published in a Daily Nation news article from August 11, 2018 includes quotes by Book Bunk co-founders that highlight their approach towards issues of representation in the McMillan library collection. The article notes and I also observed firsthand during a tour of the space in February 2019 that the building mostly contains books from the beginning of the 20th century--well before Kenya’s independence in 1963--with few works by Kenyan authors. However rather than completely overthrow all materials, the co-founders state their interest in "rejuvenating" rather than "removing."
