Director of Operations, Aida Mejía (second from right) and Joan Baker-González, President of the Board of Directors (right) attended the Mayagüez Rotary Club meeting of June 25, 2019 to accept a $4000 grant from Rotary International and the Mayagüez club to improve library reading programs for children both at the library and in schools. As the check had not arrived, they received the last club donation of books from Christa Von Hillebrandt, club President for 2018 and José Lucas, President of District 7000  Rotary Foundation.

The grant will be used to provide training in reading to children to Rotary Club volunteers and other people who will be reading to children both in the library and in schools this year. Part of the grant money will be used to provide comfortable furniture for both readers and children for story reading in the library.
