A GROUP from a remote primary school in rural East Sepik travelled all the way to Port Moresby to receive books from the National Library.
The group from Mahli Primary School in East Sepik received books from library staff.
Head teacher Hillary Jim said there was a need for a well-stocked library to serve students and the community.
“At the moment, there is no such facility,” he said.
National Library’s schools and public library advisor Mary Warus travelled to the school in 2011 where the arrangement for the supply of school books was made.
“The school paid K18,000 for the books and the National Library subsidised K2000. So we’ll get K20,000 worth of books,” Jim said.
“This is a momentous occasion for the school which has the full blessing of all parents. They said these books will serve future generations to come and provide services to the people.”
Board chairman Tonny Kokomo said plans to purchase books had been going on for several years.
“This is something that will benefit both our community and our children,” he said.
“This is very important for our children as they learn more about English through libraries.”
