YOU. That’s right! Each and every reader who participated in our summer reading contest is a winner! We are so thankful for YOUR participation. With the help from 50 of our library’s children and young adults, we reached our goal of 500 titles! And, now we can split our $500 budget 50/50 with our library and our designated nonprofit the Boys & Girls Club of Puerto Rico (BGCPR). For our library we have just purchased 17 ebooks in the amount of $250 for our digital branch. And, we will be sending our check in the amount of $250 to the BCGPR for their new library corner at one of their clubs.
Congratulations to the winners of the four reading tablets! As per our email, a library team pulled the names of the winners on Saturday, July 31. We notified the winners that same day. For the record all of the winners read over 20 books!
GREAT JOB AND CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED!!!! YOU ARE ALL WINNERS IN OUR BOOKS!
SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, August 21 from 10:30 am – 1:30 pm, join us for our Back to School Activity and Presentation of our New Arab-American collection. Thanks to a recent donation, our collection on the Arab-American heritage is expanding. We are receiving , more than 60 new books for children, young adults, and adults. These titles give us a glimpse into Arab culture and provide an opportunity to see the parallel in our own rich culture in Puerto Rico. This new collection also offers a window into Arab feminism (past and present), inventions, Palestinian & Lebanese cooking and Arabic love stories & poetry-including RUMI’s Love is my Savior. Consistent with our mission to provide resources for Puerto Rico to see the world from the comfort of our island, we are excited to receive this welcomed addition to our library. Also that day, 50% off all sales books, amnesty on fines, and $2 memberships for the first 20 people through the door. Cake and punch at 11 am.
