Having a passion for reading and wanting to see more children share that passion, St. Francis de Sales Catholic School’s Asiah Newbold organized a book drive over her summer break to assist the Marsh Harbour Public Library.

Ten-year-old Asiah is a sixth grade honour student is an avid reader who continuously strives for excellence and wishes to assist other students her age in becoming stronger readers and better students; therefore the decision to hold the drive.

She sought the community’s assistance in whatever way they could, by requesting the offer of books, computers or any items that can be used in the public library.

Since there is no Public Library in the community at present, the Local Government authorities have undertaken the task to construct one which is expected to be completed approximately November 2015.

Asiah will be making a presentation the Local Government authorities on Saturday, October 3rd, and is happy to be able to help the community in which she lives.
