Improvements in store for Hagatna library

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Significant improvements are in store for the Guam Public Library System. According to Department of Chamorro Affairs president Joseph Cameron, he's currently working with the Department of Interior Office of Insular Affairs on the bid process regarding expanding the Hagatna library.

He said, "Children need to interact, children need to be children and they can't be told to hush, so there's going to be a lot of programs in there that would allow them to express freely and to move forward with interactive opportunities of new technology."

Cameron adds this interactive element will include the use of computers and iPads to help children in the learning process. He further states a cyber café for parents will also be included in the plan. He expects the bid process to occur within the next few weeks with major development by the end of the year.
