Community libraries gift from PLP
Kristin Burt unveiled nine community libraries to children in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Progressive Labour Party’s historic election victory.
The boxes, created by pupils from CedarBridge Academy and the Berkeley Institute, will be placed in each parish and filled with books donated by members of the community.
Mrs Burt, the wife of David Burt, the Premier, said: “I’m really proud of this initiative, both because of the community support we received today and the lasting community engagement the community libraries will foster in the future. “Our senior school students have blown us away with their design and engineering skills, and their work will be on display in parks across the island for all to enjoy.
“The community libraries were a great way to give back to Bermuda as we ended our weekend of events that commemorated the 20th anniversary of the first PLP victory.
“We would also like to thank the students from both CedarBridge Academy and the Berkeley Institute for their hard work and their involvement in this community event.”
Guest readers at Monday’s event at the Botanical Gardens were Mr and Mrs Burt, singer Ashanti Caesar and former PLP senator Davida Morris.
