The American Corner is a United States Department of State-sponsored initiative inaugurated worldwide more than 10 years ago. The United States Embassy in Banjul has partnered with Comium Gambia Ltd to boost the education sector in The Gambia through the establishment of a library called the American Corner. The library provides students and the general public with books as well as internet access and educative movie shows. The library is located at the Comium building along Kairaba Avenue.
There are currently 77 American corners in Sub Saharan Africa and 400 throughout the world. The American Corners provide access to current and reliable information and access to educational material. They offer programs, events, and other activities such as author readings, films, speakers, workshops, meetings, and exhibits. Within a short time you will see this corner become a community center for all those interested in learning.
The American Embassy in partnership with Africell also inaugurated a new American Corner located at customer care services complex in Bundung. The American Corner will open on Monday through Saturday and in addition to a library and internet for research and studies, an education adviser will be available every Tuesday from 9 – 4pm to assist students on their college works and research.
