Correction for the story headlined “Abrehot Library thwarts book theft scheme, saves 24 mln birr” published on October 7, 2023

In our story headlined “Abrehot Library thwarts book theft scheme, saves 24 mln birr” and published on October 7, 2023, we have mistakenly stated Abrehot Library averted book theft perpetrated using  fraudulent cataloguing entries. However, the fact is that the Library management saved 24 million birr that could have been spent on Koha library cataloguing software, which is expensive. The Abrehot management saved the amount by developing in-house cataloguing software dubbed Dagu, which is also approved by Information Network Security Administration (INSA). The fourteen individuals apprehended while stealing books and now in the court process are also external library users and not Abrehot’s staff. We apologize to the library and our readers for any inconvenience and consequences the mistakes might have caused.
