Run by the Youth, Culture, and Development Association, the CLAC promotes access to information, provides an appealing access to reading, and each week organizes conferences, debates, and events in the capital of Yaoundé . Despite its success, the lack of financial resources for the project, which has little support from public associations, prevents the development of its activities.
Since September 2011, efforts to enlarge the CLAC were initiated in order to respond to the growing needs of the users, to make the common space more pleasant and functional, and to start the development of new cultural activities as well as possible revenue generators.
