The Zambia Library Service (ZLS), part of Zambia's educational ministry, manages the public library network throughout Zambia and assists other organizations by providing library and information services. Lubuto formalized its partnership with the Ministry and the Zambia Library Service in a 2008 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that identified Lubuto as a crucial National Partner in attaining the Millennium Development Goals. ZLS has long recognized the value of their partnership with us in strengthening their support within their Ministry and asked us if we could build Lubuto libraries along with ZLS libraries in each of Zambia’s provinces. In May, 2014 we signed an amended MOU with the Ministry outlining further details of how Lubuto and ZLS will work together to extend high quality library services to youth through Lubuto libraries at each of the provincial ZLS Libraries.
