Library Week Underwayy

By:Curtis Morton

Charlestown-Nevis-The Nevis Public Library, located on Prince William Street  Charlestown, is celebrating its Public Library Week 2017. The theme for this year is: “From Subscription Free, Your Public Library Transforming the Community.”

The week was officially opened on Friday 3rd November, when Premier of Nevis, Hon. Vance Amory, declared the week open in a televised address.

He encouraged students across the island ‘to recognise that the library is a place where you can go to help develop yourself as a student or even professionally. The library space should be used to help you develop these three R’s, not as we traditionally know them as Reading, Riting and Rithmetic, but rather Reading, Research and Reasoning.’

The full week of activities include the following:
