ALA and the Library of Congress Support the Puerto Rico Center for the Book

Loida Garcia-Febo, ALA’s president, “joined library leaders at the Puerto Rico Center for the Book to participate in a discussion entitled Read to Heal and Transform Lives, a local effort to provide library services to battered girls and adolescents in Puerto Rico,” according to a press release. It was the first in a series of events hosted by the center, which was established in early 2019 by the University of Puerto Rico’s Graduate School of Information Sciences and the Library Sciences and Informatics Library. As the 53rd affiliate center of the Library of Congress, it will offer authors colloquia, workshops, reading festivals, and contests, among other events aiming to explore how books are written and made.

“I’m inspired by the possibility of libraries providing books and services that would help heal young girls who have experienced so much at a young age. [Our] discussion illustrates how libraries and library workers transform communities through mindfulness, wellness and reading. I am humbled to be part of this beautiful project and hope that our efforts will continue to assist those in Puerto Rico who look to libraries to better their lives through education and lifelong learning,” Garcia-Febo says.

For more information, read the press release.
