Welcome to the National Library Website
The National Library Service (NLS) is responsible for ensuring that people throughout Malawi have access to reading and information materials. It has therefore for many years supported and developed various types of libraries which include school and rural libraries.
In recent years, the NLS has focused on the promotion of the reading culture especially among children. To this end, it has established primary school libraries in all the regions of the country, trained teacher librarians, stocked the libraries with both locally purchased books as well as book donations from North America and United Kingdom. It has gone further to ensure that the libraries have a conducive environment for reading by providing library furniture to the schools.
