Cash Donations and Discounts

Monetary gifts make it possible for the Library to purchase paper, pencils, and other school supplies for children who need them. Money also pays for emergency repairs which cannot be covered by the Library’s budget.

Cash donations made it possible for the Library to install hurricane shutters and A/C in the children’s section and in the adult section of the Library.

Several businesses in the community have provided discounted labor and installation charges and free rental of office equipment during the past year. These gifts have improved the physical environment of the Library for students and staff.


Critical Needs

The reading tutor program offers students one-on-one tutoring in a quiet area without distractions. However, there is no computer in that area of the Library and many remedial reading materials include interactive CDs in order to be fully functional.

The children’s section of the Library has a bare concrete floor. Tile or linoleum flooring would reduce dust, increase natural light in the area, and improve the appearance of the children’s section of the Library. This is the section of the Library that receives the heaviest use by patrons and tourists who visit the Library.

Volunteers

Volunteers give their time, their skills, and the sweat of their brows to keep the Library safe, secure, and pleasant for patrons.

Volunteers organize and staff additional services that the Library offers to the community and schools of San Pedro.
