San Pedro Town Public Library offering services to the community

Saturday, February 27th, 2016

The San Pedro Town Public Library, an extension of the Belize National Library Service and Information System, is committed to the promotion of an informed, aware and literate society that fosters our national development and cultural heritage. With this in mind, the library is constantly organizing events and activities for the benefit of the community. With a focus on our youth, the library hopes to reach out to all school children, encouraging them to take advantage of the services offered.San Pedro Library Reading Program-2
According to San Pedro Senior Library Assistant Marlene Coral, the San Pedro Town Public Library will be featuring an entire series in 2016. The series being featured is titled ‘7th Heaven’, an American series from the 90’s which touches on many social and family issues such as bullying, drugs, cursing, vandalism, alcoholism, racism, etc. “It is a great family oriented series through which we hope that patrons may find meaningful entertainment. Though the library is targeting teens for this activity, it is appropriate for the entire family since the series features multiple characters of different ages,” said Coral.San Pedro Library Reading Program-3
This initiative has been initiated in hopes of alleviating common social issues on the island by informing and educating citizens. “The invitation extends to all citizens of all ages. It is also a great opportunity for parents to learn about parenting techniques and even relationship tips.” This programed film is scheduled for weekdays (Monday to Friday) between the hours of 4PM and 5PM.San Pedro Library Reading Program-5
The library also has a variety of other activities aimed at specific age groups scheduled each month. The monthly schedule of activities is posted on the door of the library at the beginning of every month. These activities include different out-door movie nights, in-door films and discussions, early childhood development discussions, games and annual summer camps.San Pedro Library Reading Program-1
