Dominica Library & Information Service Received a Donation 2,131 Books
The Dominica Library and Information Service (DLIS) has received a donation 2,131 books from Book Aid International to support public library services with re-stocking after the passage of Hurricane Maria.
According to a Press Release from the Ministry of Education Book Aid International is the UK’s leading book donation and library development charity and has worked in partnership with library services for over 60 years.
The DLIS and Book Aid International signed a Partnership Agreement on January 5, 2018 with the aim to work together to provide appropriate books for public libraries within Dominica and to support an environment in which reading for pleasure, study and lifelong learning can flourish post hurricane Maria.
The books are expected to be available for users and members at all public libraries – Roseau Public Library now located at the National Documentation Centre Building; Portsmouth Mobile Library serving from Bay Street, Portsmouth; Marigot Library (upstairs the Pharmacy, Weirs) and the Grand Bay Branch Library at the Grand Bay Community Centre.
