Literacy event raises $1000 for reading initiative

| 17/09/2013

(CNS): A special sale of second hand books as well as locally-produced art and jewellery raised over CI$ 1000 on International Literacy Day at the Public Library on Saturday, 7 September for a local literacy organization. LIFE offers a number of reading programmes for students and adults to emphasise the importance of reading. Visitors to the library were also able to take part in book readings and view a live thatch braiding demonstration.  Budding authors even had an opportunity to express an interest in creative writing programmes. In keeping with the emphasis on literacy, families with young children received reading fun packs that included library membership forms as they entered the new library building.

Other organisations in attendance at the fair included: the Cayman Islands Humane Society, Pennies for Polio, the Red Cross, Cayman Islands Information Professionals (CIIP),  the Chess Club, and Baraud Recruitment  in addition to Sunrise and Central Rotary Clubs.
