The Mt. Zion Public Library and Resource Centre is the only public library in St. Georges. The team of librarians and volunteers have been building and supporting a growing community of readers since 2014. They announce the launch of their “Friends of the Library” initiative, inviting anyone who believes in the power of a free public library in national development, to join. By becoming a Friend of the Library you are committing to support Mt Zion Public Library’s book collection, literacy, and educational offerings to over 1300 members (70% teens & children). By making your first annual donation you will become a “Friend of the Library”, help keep the library open & accessible, and sponsor two members for a year. This free resource for the whole community is seeking support from all sectors to remain open.
