OLPC laptops and computer programs were introduced at Fountain of Hope Library in February, 2009.  All three Lubuto libraries now have computers, which are very heavily used—particularly to improve language and computer skills. One recent addition to the libraries is the introduction of ZEduPads, touch-screen tablets loaded with interactive lessons for the Zambian primary curriculum.

In 2012, Lubuto launched 700 LubutoLiteracy lessons, reading lessons in seven different Zambian languages. These lessons were created by Zambian teachers and youth to serve as engaging learning tools. Originally in an eToy format, these lessons have been updated and will soon be released in an even more accessible format. It is our hope that children and teachers in communities both close and far away from Lubuto libraries will use these new literacy lessons.
