Libraries transform lives

LIBRARIES not only change our lives individually but also provide support and change for communities.

This is because libraries welcome everyone equally offering a unique place to build relationships where users can contribute to the development of their communities.

That was the message of US Embassy public affairs officer Joseph Crook during the Gospel High School National Library Week celebration in Suva last week.

With the theme lives change at your library, Mr Crook said when a child goes to a library and borrowed a book to read his or her life started to transform from that point on.

In his address Mr Crook said the transformation journey expanded the child's horizon, broadened their mind, increased knowledge and developed their intellectual and personal growth.

"Children, we must all remember that your school library is a very important place to be. That is your treasure house in school and in the weekends, your public library becomes your treasure house," he said.
