    The libraries of 10 primary and all-age schools in Clarendon are now better equipped through a recent donation of books by Jamalco.
    The beneficiary institutions are: Osbourne Store and Chandler’s Pen Primary and Junior High; Chapleton, Crooked River and Rock River All-age; and Moravia, Victoria, Anderson Town and Coffee Piece Primary Schools.
    Speaking at the handing over ceremony held at Osbourne Store Primary School, Jamalco’s Public Relations and Media Specialist, Ealane Livingston-Smith, urged the students to read to improve their vocabulary and learn about a wide range of topics.
    “If you want to learn to speak fluently, then you have no choice but to pick up a book and read as widely as possible,” she said.
    She informed that the books were sourced in the United States, with Alcoa Foundation and Jamalco underwriting the cost of shipping, handling, storage and distribution.
    Mrs. Livingston-Smith noted that since 1989 Jamalco has assisted a number of schools and colleges in acquiring text books for libraries and classroom use.
