By Aaron Humes: The Belize National Library Service and Information System announces the launch of Library Week from December 2 to 7.
Libraries? What are those, you ask?
In case you’ve forgotten, they are a record and repository of thought and scholarship created to foster the love of reading and literature.
The Library Service’s selected theme is: Belize Libraries: Transforming, Enriching and Uplifting Communities Since 1935!
In a statement the Service says, “This is a time to celebrate libraries, reading and writing across the country. Videos will be posted daily on individual branch library Facebook pages and on www.facebook.com/BelizeLibraries.”
The official launch of Library week was held today and was followed by daily postings of messages by authors, highlights from branch and community libraries.
On December 7th, there will be a discussion on the Future of Libraries.
Contact your nearest library for videos. To share your photos of Belizean libraries, Belizean books or Belizean authors, use #LibraryWeekBZ.
