The Mt Zion Public Library and Resource Centre is the only public library in St George’s. The team of librarians and volunteers have been building and supporting a growing community of readers since 2014. They announce the launch of their “Friends of the Library” initiative, inviting anyone who believes in the power of a free public library in national development, to join.
By becoming a Friend of the Library you are committing to support Mt Zion Public Library’s book collection, literacy, and educational offerings to over 1,300 members (70% teens and children). By making your first annual donation you will become a “Friend of the Library”, help keep the library open & accessible, and sponsor two members for a year. This free resource for the whole community is seeking support from all sectors to remain open.
The library’s first Anniversary Gala — Food for the Mind and Soul on 5 December 2015, 7 pm at True Blue Bay Resort, makes this an excellent time to support literacy and education in Grenada. Tickets cost US$70 or EC$180. With this contribution, patrons will become an official “Friend of the Library” plus enjoy a gourmet 3 course meal, which includes favorite dishes of Grenada’s celebrities and literary stars, as well as lively readings, music and entertainment by Crème de la Crème and FLOM. Tickets are available at True Blue Bay Boutique Resort, Mitchell’s Pharmacy, DutyFree Caribbean, L L Ramdhanny in Grenville, The Wine Shoppe, and at the Mt Zion Library upstairs Digicel St George’s.
A grand raffle will be held at the gala. Prizes include a 3 night stay at Lance Aux Epines Cottages for a maximum of 4 persons; Yoga for 2 for a month at Spice Harmony Yoga; a Balinese massage at Laluna Resort; a facial at Spice Isle Retreat Spa; 3 bottles of wine and a bucket from NorthSouth Wines; and a trip for 2 to the Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park with S & S Kayaking.
