- Press Release, San Pedro Town Library, Tuesday, March 01, 2005 - The San Pedro Town Library is pleased to announce that we have been offered a BZ/US$5,000.00 challenge grant by an anonymous donor. The way the grant works is that if the Library is able to raise $5,000.00, the donor will match the amount.
The money raised will enable us to pay for our much-needed building expansion program, infrastructure to support the computers that were recently donated and purchase more books and essential supplies.
So far this year, we have managed to raise $724.00 from the proceeds of our recent book and bake sale. If you would like to make a donation towards this challenge, please contact the Senior Library Assistant, Iracela Acosta on 226-3564 or visit the library in person.
We shall be holding more book and bake sales later this year. Remember, this is YOUR library and the better facilities we have, the better able we are to serve the community of San Pedro. Education and applied knowledge benefit all of us here in Ambergris Caye. We therefore urge readers to support our challenge and help us to match this generous offer.
