Charities and government organizations are receiving hundreds of books this week, thanks to a donation from Books & Books.
The Bonaventure Boys Home, Frances Bodden Girls Home, the Department of Children and Family Services, the government library, Cayman Islands Hospital and Northward Prison will each receive between 50 to 500 books.
“We hope that our books widen the imagination and can help people broaden their view on life,” said Sioux Lees, general manager of Books & Books, which is owned by Dart Enterprises.
To create space for new stock, the Camana Bay bookstore has been holding a big book sale in recent weeks to clear out its inventory.
“An estimated 6,000 books were put on sale and … around 2,000 remain,” said Ms. Lees, whose donation plan will go into effect this week.
