U.S Embassy in Georgetown makes life easier for Guyanese who want to study in the US – 13th Feb 2013
The United States Ambassador to Georgetown, Brent Hardt, launched the American Spots, which is a collection of books, resources and other information on the United States.
Ambassador Hardt said today’s donation follows in the footsteps of Scottish-American Philanthropist, Andew Carnegie, of whom the National Library was originally named after.
The American diplomat said a second donation of the American Spots will be made to the University of Guyana’s main Library.
He said today’s donation is part of the culture and education programmes of the US embassy.
Ambassador Hardt said the materials include some of the American Classics, such as Tom Sawyer, Catch 22, To Kill A Mocking Bird and the Twilight Series.
He said the resources also have several novels that are written in Braille, for the blind and visually impaired.
