Volunteers from the Filipino community service group unloaded boxes of books packed away since hurricane Ivan. They salvaged what they could and assembled, disinfected and re-labelled the books to boost the library’s collection.

According to release, the non-profit group focuses on community service projects in Cayman Islands to highlight the Filipinos’ commitment and integration locally.

The public libraries in Grand Cayman sustained varying degrees of damage due to the 2004 storm.

Ms Benedicta Connolly, the director of the public library said ‘We are grateful for the help that the Filipino community service group have given to us over the weekend and the previous three times. It is much appreciated and has helped to expand the range of books substantially.’

If you want to get involved in community work with the Filipino community service group, call the organiser on 925-3010.
