Library project near end

| 03/04/2009

(CNS): The new George Town library received another welcome boost this morning when Andrew Reid, a partner with Maples and Calder, the partner sponsor of the library extension development handed over another instalment of US$700,000 in the financing of the project. In total the legal firm will be donating some US$2.5 million to complete the new building which is expected to be open in a few weeks.


“It’s a fantastic project and a great thing for Cayman,” said Reid as he handed the cheque to Alden McLaughlin, Minister for Education. Both men said they were excited about the joint partnership and not least, despite some two years in the making the entire library extension and development was coming in on budget at around $5 million. The facility is expected to be officially opened by the Minister in a few weeks when he said he would reveal the full details about the state of the art library facility.

    Congratulations to Maples & Calder for doing their part to assist in the continuing education of citizens and residents of the Cayman Islands.  US$2.5 million is a  lot of money – but a worthwhile investment.  Thank you so much Maples & Calder.
