Library for seniors
September 20, 2012 1:01 am
Senior citizens of Suva can expect library services at their door step soon.
Suva Special Administrator Chandu Umaria says this new initiative is part of extending the Suva City Carnegie Library services to the people.
When we do start this service, they can ring the council library, and they will give us their address, and we will ask them which types of books they’re interested in, fiction, non-fiction, whatever it may be, and we will take this books right to their door steps. This is the added services that will give to the rate payers of Suva.
The Indian High Commission has donated a hundred and thirty thousand dollars for a new mobile library that will be responsible for this service.
And Umaria says schools will also be serviced.
A lot of children are not able to come to the library because their parents maybe at work and they don’t have the transport to come to the library so now we will take the library to the people, to the schools which probably do not have libraries.
Just yesterday, the New Zealand High Commission donated thirty books to the Carnegie Library.
Umaria says they’ve received similar assistance from other missions around the country that’s greatly enhanced their services.
