Librii: New Model Library in Africa

Librii, a “digitally enhanced, community-based, revenue-generating library on the frontiers of broadband connectivity” in Accra, Ghana was funded by Kickstarter in April 2013.

It’s interesting to study the included African Undersea Cables map (with connections planned for 2014, 2015, and another showing those cables active in Nov. 2012) as seen on the project page.
