Public encouraged to make use of libraries
November 28, 2015 3:55 am
While it may be an old-fashioned system, libraries remain an integral part in building a nation.
This was one of the major points highlighted during the Fiji Library Association annual general meeting in Suva today.
Permanent Secretary for Ministry for Women Dr Josefa Koroivueta reiterated the message to the public and librarians while opening the 40th Fiji Library Association AGM.
“Libraries if used well, promote lifelong learning, high levels of literacy and preserve written manuscripts of dynamic epochs of our cultures and histories for the future generation.”
Koroivueta says libraries and librarians in the past have been a pillar for nation building, helping people in their life and this needs to continue.
The theme of the meeting was Libraries, Knowledge and Communities which aims to make greater contribution to the society.
