American Shelf Kiribati

The American Shelf Kiribati (ASK) was established in 2016 in partnership with the Kiribati Ministry of Education and Kiribati National Library and Archives. The ASK is located in Tarawa at the Kiribati National Library and holds a collection of reference and literacy material on American history, culture, education, landmarks, art, environment and many more. Part of the ASK services to the Kiribati nationals are the outreach makerspace and EdUSA programs for students, professionals and communities.  A literacy and reading program is also held on Saturdays with children and their parents.
