Library and Information Service observes Library Week

Library week will be celebrated from May 9 – 14, 2011 with the theme, “Discover the Possibilities @ Your Library.”

Libraries are places of opportunity and the Library and Information Service will engage in a number of activities during the week to promote the services and holdings and reach out to the community.

The week will commence with an opening ceremony at the Portsmouth Library on Monday 9 scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m. This library week, join our libraries and librarians and discover the possibilities.

The Roseau Public Library is celebrating library week by hosting a session on healthy eating, presenting a display of cook books from Dominica and the Caribbean with the option for patrons to copy a special recipe, holding information skills for students, presentation of a gift basket to the Infirmary and visit to the prison.

The Documentation Centre celebrates with activities aimed at promoting the services offered.  Sessions are planned for public officers and students of the Wesley High school and Pierre Charles Secondary school, to sensitize them to the role and functions of the Centre.

The Portsmouth Library celebrates by holding information skills sessions for students of CALLS, a remedial reading session and a spelling bee competition. A talk on the importance of education and a book display will also form part of the activities.

At Grand Bay, the branch library will celebrate by providing information skills sessions for students from Bagatelle & Petite Savanne and will bring in community leaders and a group of elders from the community to speak to students from the Tete Morne , Pichelin and Grand Bay Primary schools. Friday is set aside for the preschoolers.

The Marigot Branch Library will celebrate by presenting a display on community leaders and holding reading sessions with children in the community.

As we celebrate Library Week, we invite you to join us and discover the possibilities by opening a book and discover new worlds or by learning how to use Technology to find the information you need.

    The money for the Presidential Palace Malice should be invested in state of the art libraries.
    The Main Library in Roseau is a DISGRACE!! Our libraries is a reflection of the state of
    our intellectual development.
