As parts of efforts to contribute to the human resource capacity in River Gee County through education, a US$27,000 library project is already nearing completion and will soon be dedicated for the students in Fish Town, River Gee County.
The project which is funded by the River-Gee County Association in Americas (RIGCAA) for students of the county, according to the Country Representative of RIGCAA in Liberia, Grace T. Jarsor, is a result of the growing needs by students in that part of the country.
Mrs. Jarsor said when the Fish Town library project is completed and dedicated, it will create a conducive learning environment for many of the students who will have access to library and books to do their research, studies, assignments, etc.
She lauded the goodwill of RIGCAA for their prompt and timely intervention to provide for the needs of students in Fish Town to have underwritten the Fish Town Library Project at the cost of US$ 27,000.
Mrs. Jarsor indicated that the Fish Town Library Project started in 2017 under the able leadership of the former President of RIGCAA, Mrs. Alice Wilson Mulbah, as a means of improving the educational sector of Liberia, mainly the Capital City of River-Gee – Fish Town.
She noted that the library contained store room, toilet and one bed room for the library caretaker, and that when it is completed; it will host about 100 to 200 students per day.
The RIGCAA country representative also reiterated that over the years the children mainly the student population did not have any reading facility, a reason which she said necessitated the decision to construct the library in the county.
