    Children’s Library of the Dominican Republic to lend out 19,000 Books
    Santo Domingo, September 27th, 2017

    The Children’s Library of the Dominican Republic (BIJRD) has begun a new service of library lending that permits members to sign out books for a limited period of in-home use.

    The service, which consists in granting library users a library-issued identification card, seeks to encourage reading at home and guarantee greater convenience for readers. Through an integrated management system termed KOHA, users will be able to access 19,209 books in the BIJRD collection.

    Four Community Technological Centers (CTC) located in Villa Mella, La Nueva Barquita, Boca Chica, and Jimaní will also participate in the initiative. In order to access the lending service, individuals can go to the BIJRD website: http://bijrd.gob.do/, look at the catalogue online, and request a library card.

    After this step, cardholders can check out two books at a time for a period of up to 15 days. In consideration of some books’ age, condition, uses as reference materials, or high volume of demand, not all of the library’s materials will be made available to participants.

    This new service was announced during a ceremony presided over by Dr. Margarita Cedeño, Vice President of the Dominican Republic, in addition to the directors of various institutions affiliated with the Cabinet of Coordination of Social Policies (GCPS), such as Dulce Elvira de los Santos from the BIJRD; Altagracia Suriel, from Progresando con Solidaridad (Prosoli); Claudio Doñé of the CTC; Ramón González, from the Administration of Social Subsidies (ADESS); and other special invitees.

    “We are also working on a system of inter-library loans, which is something that Dr. Margarita Cedeño has long envisioned for the library,” explained De los Santos.

    During the ceremony, the Vice President as well as the aforementioned directors were issued library cards which will allow them to use the new platform. Cards were also issued to a group of children belonging to various book clubs hosted by the BIJRD.
