US Ambassador to Fiji Frankie Reed visited the Savusavu Public Library as part of the American roadshow in Savusavu this week.

She also made a sizeable gift of library books to the Savusavu Public Library and commended the efforts of the children, librarians and a US Peace Corps volunteer for maintaining an informative library and increasing an appreciation for reading among children and youths in Savusavu.

Ms Reed interacted with 20 children who participated in the library's Globetrotting program.

She said the Globetrotting program was facilitated by the Peace Corps volunteer and taught children between eight and 14 years about countries of the world, providing them an opportunity to learn about the respective countries' language, food, people, culture and tradition. "From January 29 to February 2, children have been learning about the United States of America, setting a backdrop for the ambassador's visit to the library," Ms Reed said.
