The Bookworm

Library Membership

“Reading forces you to learn new words, to think new thoughts, to keep going.”



Read diverse

The good thing about a library book is that you don’t commit to it. You commit to the library, to the act of constant reading. Read around, read new genres, read diverse!


The growth of the library is linked to each membership; each member contributes minimum one book to the library with their fees. That’s positive growth.


The monthly fee is Ksh 500, which comes in three bundles; 3-month, 6-month and 1-year. You can take up to 2 books at a time, and we charge a returnable deposit of Ksh 2000 per book as a guarantee.


As with every library, we charge overdue fines of Ksh 50 per day, so don’t be late returning the books. You can extend the books twice, if they have not been requested. Each loan period is three weeks.

Sign up request

This form will generate a membership request. You will still need to sign a contract in person and make payment in order to check out books from us.



The small print….


Members may borrow up to two items per person for a three-week loan period. Items may be renewed for another loan period, provided that the items have not been requested by another user.

It is the borrower’s responsibility to ensure that items are returned to the library on time; overdue fines will be charged on late returns or rentals. Fines for overdue items are charged at a rate of Ksh 50 per item per day. Fines must be paid before further items are borrowed or existing loans renewed.

A returnable deposit at a rate of Ksh 2000 per item must be made at the beginning of the membership. The deposit will be returned at the end of the membership or rolled over for further renewal.
