U.S. Consul General Valerie Belon, who made the donation, said: "We are proud of our relationship with the library, and feel that a variety of English language books fosters even stronger ties and provides more opportunities for interaction in the future."

The U.S. Consulate’s donation of books and other educational materials to libraries has become one of its regular activities over the past years. To date the Consulate has given hundreds of books to libraries across the Dutch Caribbean.

Among the donated books are selections on American history, politics, culture, literature, as well as English language resources, and a variety of anti-drug flyers. Titles included Mohammed Ali, Teenage Survival Guide, The Science Book, California Missions, and America’s First Ladies, to name a few.

The United States Consulate General hopes this collection will contribute to a better understanding of the U.S. and its diverse culture. Marketing Manager Arthur Tholel, and library employees Monica Swalef and Sherline Lucas accepted this gift on behalf of library director Gerda Willems.
