The Santa Elena library extension and rehabilitation was officially inaugurated this morning. On hand to open the New Santa Elena Library and Resource Center were Area Representative Rene Montero as well as Minister of Education Hon. Patrick Faber. The resource center is actually an internet café. 14 new computers were provided along with internet services. Eliodi Wagner, who was the Senior librarian for many years at the library, gave the invocation at today’s opening. She told us that she trusts that the students and children of that community will take advantage of the new improvements.
“Of course this is a longstanding library in the community here. I had the opportunity to visit some years ago and so, I knew of the very much needed refurbishment and in fact the expansion that was necessary. Thankfully, through the efforts of the Social Investment Fund, of course, triggered by the area representative, the Hon. Rene Montero, we were able to get this project jump-started and in fact we had this wonderful success today”.
The library was renovated in partnership with the Government of Belize and the Social Investment Fund
