Grenada: Donations Needed for the New Mt. Zion Library

library

The new Mt. Zion Library is being painted and prepared for serving the public as I write. . . Located in the beautiful, historic Arnold John Building on Melville Street (opposite the Esplanade Mall) in St George’s, Grenada, the library is a charitable initiative already in progress. The new library came about as a response to the closure of the public library and the lack of access to books in St. George’s. It is being built on donations, voluntary labor and love. Initiated by author Oonya Kempadoo and the Mt. Zion Full Gospel Revival Ministry, the library aims to provide diverse and multi-cultural literature for children and youth.

Your help is urgently needed so that the library can be up and running in short order.  Please give generously through the link below. The Mt. Zion Library will provide free access to:

  • A general collection of books for persons aged 14+ years
  • A children’s library
  • A space to encourage reading and literacy among children and adults

To date, individuals and groups have contributed over 2,000 books, volunteers have been identified and have been working on the space, and renovation and equipment priorities have been targeted. Your help is urgently needed for a startup fund of EC$5000. Please give generously.

To donate and to receive more information, you may call (473) 418 4357 or (473) 535 3858, email mtzionlibrary@gmail.com, or simply visit https://www.wepay.com/donations/mt.-zion-homework-and-reading-centre [this link is time-sensitive].
