The tree and elephant symbols depicted on our scarves are indigenous to the eastern province of Zambia, and reflect the culture of the community that Lubuto serves. Created by traditional artists in Lusaka, the tree and elephant ornament the outside walls of the first Lubuto library. The motifs were carefully chosen so that our children and youth would see our library as an extension of their community, a connection with their roots, and a place where they are very welcome and belong.
