A representative from the Social Investment Fund SIF handed over the keys to a completely refurbished library in Santa Elena Town in the Cayo District on Friday of last week. Mike Zetina from SIF delivered the documents and keys to Joy Ysaquirre, Chief Librarian Officer in a brief signing ceremony at the upper floor of the newly improved and spacious building that will be inaugurated soon.

Improvements to the Santa Elena Public Library came at a cost of about $415,000.00, with some of the funding coming from the Caribbean Development Bank.

The work completed at the Santa Elena Public Library involved the building of a computer room extension, equipped with fifteen desktops and a central server. This new and well ventilated computer room is in fulfillment of a vision by Cayo Central Area Representative, the Hon. Rene Montero, to usefully engage our Nation’s youths.  In addition to general improvements of the original structure, a six foot high chain link fence was also built for added security to the freshly painted building.

“Thanks to SIF for the wonderful job well done, that will benefit the children and adults, I thank you very much; we need to come together as a community to make things happen,” said Isaura Williams, Education Officer for the Cayo District.
