Humanitarian News recently featured the Ghana library being built in Ashaiman by the Princeton chapter of Engineers Without Borders.

Judging from EWB’s blog, the crew has made tremendous progress this summer. EWB members plan to finish construction of the library, to outfit it with furniture and books, and to install a digital infrastructure including netbooks and Internet access. The EWB team is also formulating educational programming that aims to foster traditional and digital literacy.

The video below features the first phase of the library project. During that phase, EWB members laid the concrete foundation and main structural elements of the library and collected more than 4,000 books.
