JudyThe Library Restoration Project is now able to gratefully accept donations. All donations are "tax deductible" for U.S. citizens under the 501c(3) status.

Money is needed for library cataloging supplies, new, updated books - expecially reference books, renovation materials such as stain, waterproof wall paint, additional shelving, bathroom windows and faucet, etc. Actual renovation work will begin February 1 at which time the building is to close through April. Existing books will be sorted & cleaned if possible, catalogued ( both manually and on the computer ). A computer is being donated by the Rotary International via Rotary Nassau; software by a generous donor, and "gratis" internet service via Coralwave.

This is an enormous project and one which benefits our school children, our adults, and our community as a whole. The "vision" of an alive information center is worth the work -- worth the investment.

We need your gifts and your talents. Everyone can join in - whatever your expertise. Together anything is possible. To date, we have a boat with motor to auction or raffle off and a handmade, lovely children's bookcase is being built by a local resident. We are off to a wonderful start.

There are 2 ways to help monetarily:
(1) Donate a book. See Val at the Dilly Dally Shop. She has a preferred list on Bahamian culture & history and books by Bahamian authors to choose from. She will order ones she does not have in stock. These books have been highly recommended by the Haynes Library in Governor's Harbour. Please purchase a hard bound volume as they will last longer. Our goal is for a permanent collection of books.
(2) Cash donations are accepted as well. Any checks can be made out to the Briland Modem Fund but MUST be earmarked for the LIBRARY RESTORATION FUND. This money will be used for new books and/or refurbishing materials.
Be ready to make this a reality. And visit our Sir George W.K. Roberts Memorial Library to see it as it exists today. We are about to make "magic"!
