Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc., Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The desire to set up a library for use by the students of the Mt. Moritz Anglican School in Grenada proved very challenging in the beginning. This challenge did not come about out of lack of the main ingredient that is ‘books for lending’, thanks to the thoughtfulness and generosity of our friends from Hands Across the Sea, but rather, out of the need to find adequate and suitable space/ room for such project.

Initially, the space identified for set up of the library was used as a storeroom for the school. This room was dark, unpainted, untiled, unlighted with no windows or shelves. Following a visit by Tom and a local links representative, it was decided that we will have to make it work as there were no alternative in the immediate future.

Voluntary efforts by a Contractor in the area who serves as maintenance handyman to the school, saw the clearing, cleaning, smoothing of the walls and painting of the said room within one day. However, the issue of lighting and air remained a concerned, since metaphorically, books likes and needs air and light to breathe.

Although, the identified room was being worked on, the Principal was still not happy with the chosen room and continued to weigh and measure alternative space within the school until the visit by local Links officers Mrs. Gloria Bonaparte and Mrs. Bernadette John.
Alas! Following careful observation and much discussions, it was agreed that the library can be housed jointly with the School’s Staffroom and or IT room.

Hence the grand Library launch and opening was held on 26th March, 2019.
