Four papers on the role of libraries in adult education were presented at the 1984 IFLA general conference meeting of the Section on Adult Education.

O. Olembo), which examines the current status of reading habits at all levels of education in Africa, reading motives, and implementation of reading habits; and (4) "Promotion of the Reading Habit and Adult Education" (E.
