The Narok knls branch is located approximately one kilometre away from the busy Narok town. It is located in a serene place along the Narok-Bomet road where one can have a topographical view of the surrounding environment. It is the first public library in the Maa region and it is expected to play a major role of supplementing formal education, stimulate interest in books and reading for enjoyment and recreation within the county. The Maasai Community has been underprivileged in provision of access to information and this resource centre will serve as a key resource in empowering the pastoralist community. Narok is a transit town and a gateway to the eighth wonder of the world, the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Visitors to this town now have the opportunity to understand more about the Maasai community and what Narok County offers to make their visits confortable and exciting by stopping at the Narok Library for information on their areas of interest.
