The NMH MediaTech Library, Kiosk and Studio is a place where anyone can go and do their assignments, scroll through the archives of old newspapers and enjoy refreshments at the kiosk. It is open to all, especially to the youth of Namibia, as it is indeed a friendly and calm space to catch up with work or assignments.

The production director and training officer at NMH, Alexander Fase, thanked the CEO of NMH, Albe Botha, for coming up with the idea of the information centre, and Ernst Venke who donated all of his archived newspapers and dedicating two months to gathering all this material.

“I am extremely proud of Thusnelda, Fransina and Bronwyn who have put so much effort and passion into the archiving; they will always be here to assist. The many visitors during the day from Windhoek and outside Windhoek, students working on assignments, or companies looking for their own information in our archives. Lastly the journalists, marketing department and production department who are constantly looking for information,” Fase said.

Botha was extremely proud to see the fruition of a project that had been going on for months.

“We have been working on this project ever since the lockdown and to see it finished and ready for the public brings so much joy to me.

“As a world we are moving into a digital space and people find it difficult to concentrate because their faces are stuck to the screens, but this new information centre will allow people to be able to read, which is very important. I urge the youth of Namibia to make their way to the centre as they will really benefit from being here,” Botha said.
