Ghana Donates Books

Ghanaian High Commissioner to Sierra Leone, Dr. Mokowa Blay-Gyamfi Wednesday donated a large quantity of books and reference materials to the Sierra Leone Library Board.

Blay-Gyamfi recalled that during her school days, there were no computers which means that the materials donated will equally be useful to students and pupils who register with the library.

"The teachers were expecting us to read wide in order to expand our knowledge," she said.

Dr. Blay-Gyamfi called on the Chief Librarian to encourage children to develop the culture of reading as it will help to widen their knowledge.

She however pledged her country's continuous support for the government and people of Sierra Leone.

Receiving the items, the Chief Librarian of the Sierra Leone Library Board, Victor Coker said he was very happy to receive the books from the Ghanaian High Commissioner and promised that they will be utilized judiciously.
