Or whatever it has to be called.
Hmmm... I'm not really sure where to start.
Should I rejoice? I think I have to. Woohoo. Books. That's where I'll start, from books. I used to have many books. Not anymore. At best I have at least twenty books.
Since I've been living in Pang, I keep wanting books. Shit, I sound like I'm on a high horse, or a born-again Eskimo. I'm not saying books make you smart or make you understand right away, but to have the comfort of books and to be literate increases the joy of self-education. To learn and be amused at what you've learn is awesome. Anyways, I'm sad to say books are not "everywhere" around here.
So, to change that situation, or to try and change that situation, the Pangnirtung Youth Council will provide space to have a book club in Pang. And as part of the goal, a bookshelf has to be filled from top to bottom, to start off the project.
As the collection progresses, it is hoped that there will be reading nights for people of all ages, from the youngest to the oldest, in any language possible.
I'll provide more details as I know more about the club. What time and location and so on.
Any help from anyone will be greatly appreciated and we will try to assist you in every possible way. If you want to help, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The benefits are invaluable. A reading society is a responsive society towards itself.
You know, I bet we will start a local newspaper one of these days. reported and read by the people of Pang.
Let's help each other through small acts. Donate a book.
