“Books are knowledge. Books are reflection. Books change your mind.” – Toni Morrison

Started in 2021, Lolwe Bookshop is Kisumu’s first online bookstore. Serving the lakeside city and the surrounding towns, it is an initiative to have more readers access books easily. The bookstore exists to fulfil the gap in the market that has forced people living within Kisumu to travel to Nairobi to get books or have to wait for so long to receive their parcels. Lolwe Bookshop is dedicated to ensuring that availability of books is not a hindrance to reading. It is our hope that this step will promote the reading culture in Kisumu and help to grow a bigger reading population than the one that already exists.

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.” – James Baldwin
