Today happens to be World Book Day as well as the 18th anniversary of the Library here at the Center. Starting with just a bookshelf of a few books that the founder Sister Margarita started loaning out has now grown to a collection of 6.700 books. The library currently has over 700 users each month. It’s also a space for personal development for kids and adolescents from the community, from everything to the scholarship students who work in the library to children who come to participate in story time, study circles and workshops about social themes.
To celebrate today the Library is having a marathon of book reading as well as a showcase of books for children and adults alike to explore upstairs along with an exposition of the history of the library.
Happy book day, and here’s to many more years of promoting literacy and personal development through the CCBN Library!
