Logos II returning

The International Floating Bookshop Logos II is returning to Georgetown, Grand Cayman, from 7-10 April.

The Logos II is owned and operated by Educational Book Exhibits Ltd., a non-profit making charity registered in the UK.

It has a unique international crew of 70 volunteers representing more than 20 different nations and its purpose is to bring knowledge, help and hope.

Each volunteer crew member, including the captain and officers, are financially sponsored by friends and family, receiving no pay during their time on board.

The ship carries an extensive book shop, carrying more than 5,000 titles, covering such categories as children, sports and hobbies, novels, dictionaries, atlases, college text books, bibles, and Christian literature.

In more than 38 years of international service, Logos II and her sister ships, Logos and Doulos, have visited more than 145 countries, called in at 1,100 port cities, provided more than 178 million books and warmly welcomed 36 million visitors on board.

While berthed at Georgetown Harbour, visitors are welcome on board the vessel to explore its popular and extensive book shop.

The ship will be open to the public on Monday 7 April from 10am to 10pm, on Wednesday 9 April from 10am to 4.30pm, and on Thursday 10 April from 10am to 4pm. Entrance costs CI$0.50.
