The Rotary Club of Garden City (Georgetown) launched its first “Little Free Community Library” on Sunday 4th September, 2022, to commemorate International Literacy Day which is observed on September 8th, 2022. The Little Library, which is located in the compound of Cheshire Home, is aimed to serve the Mahaica Community.
The concept is to “Take a book, and Leave a Book”. However, persons can still borrow a book and return it, if they have no book to exchange. Members of the Community are encouraged to utilize it, as the Library contains books for all ages.
Basic Education and Literacy is one of the areas of focus of Rotary International and is the theme for the month of September. This Community Library is our demonstration of creating a community wide network of readers.
