Freeport, Bahamas - In an effort to grow the current book selection at the Sir Jack Hayward Adult Library in Grand Bahama, Solomon’s recently made a cash donation to provide one month’s supply of reading materials.

Renea Bastian, Vice President of Marketing & Communications at the company said the gift is a part of Solomon’s commitment to backing community-focused organizations as they contribute in a positive way. “We know the value of knowledge and the importance of reading and so when we were approached by the library’s Executive Director, Mrs. Geneva Rutherford, there was no hesitation on our part to give,” Bastian explained.

“The Sir Jack Hayward Library continues to play a key role in the overall education of the community in Grand Bahama, enhancing the lives of individuals through numerous programs and services.  We hope that our contribution can go a long way in keeping persons interested in visiting the facilities for research and enjoyment.”

The non-profit library is sustained by corporate donations as well as monies collected by patrons for internet access and photocopying services. Presently, the library caters to more than 600 adults in the community, offering new reading material on a monthly basis.
