The MV Logos Hope, a 132m (433ft) long ship, which has a collection of more than 5,000 books, has officially opened its doors to the public in Kenya’s coastal city of Mombasa.
The ship will be open for 45 days for book lovers, who will be able to go on board for a small fee and find thousands of books across different genres.
Visitors can either read books while on the vessel or purchase them to take home.
Mombasa’s Education Executive Mbwarali Kame told Kenyan media they were planning to get students from across the six sub-countries to visit the ship.
The MV Logos Hope is the world´s largest floating book fair and is operated by a non-profit organisation in Germany.
It has previously docked in Ghana, as well as Liberia.
