Liberia - Libraries and museums

The government maintains a central public library in Monrovia, with 15,000 volumes. UNESCO also operates a library in Monrovia, and the Liberian Information Service has a research library in the same city. The University of Liberia's library contained 108,000 volumes and the Cuttington University College library formerly held 92,000 volumes, but their contents was subjected to looting during the civil war of the 1990s. The National Museum of Liberia is housed in the renovated Supreme Court building in Monrovia, and the Tubman Center of African Cultures is located in Robertsport. Other museums include the National Cultural Center in Cape Mount, the Africana Museum at Monrovia, the W. V. S. Tubman Library-Museum at Harper, and the Natural History Museum at the University of Liberia.

I also know of the Africana Museum that is at Cuttington University in Bong County. It is currently under renovation and reactivation after going through a period of dormancy following the civil crises that lasted through the '80s and '90s. The museum was established in 1960. Being in central Liberia, it held some of the nation's finest artifacts as well as articles from other African countries totaling some 5, 000 items. It was a site of attraction for many international guests. It will be helpful researching this. I could give you direct sources.
