The school has only basic amenities and lacks a library with reading materials. Without supplemental reading and research materials, says the school’s director Mr. Jean-Baptiste, students rely on rote classroom learning. Staff, students, and school administration identified a library as being one of their greatest needs, and LWB has offered our support to them.

From  Gerald Jean Baptiste, Director of the School:

Je tiens a apprecier le courage et la determination de toute cette belle equipe de LIBRARIANS WITHOUT BORDERS pour leur devouement a la cause du Lycee Jean-Baptiste Cineas du Limbe. J’ai pris note de tous vos efforts et vous en serai toujours reconnaissant. BONJOUR AMICAL a Chacune et a Chacune de VOUS!

Our relationship began by seeding their library collection with a book-drive run by our LWB McGill University committee, and has evolved into a pledge to the staff and students by LWB International to mark their 20th school anniversary in January 2013 with an in-progress library to commemorate the occasion.
