LATT members give thanks

ON JANUARY 16, The Library Association of Trinidad and Tobago (LATT) celebrated its 50th anniversary with an inter-faith thanksgiving service at the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity, Port-of-Spain.

Various esteemed members of the Inter-Religious Organisation (IRO), including Pundit Bramdeo Maharaj, President of the IRO, offered inspirational prayers and readings. Dr Valerie Hackshaw, Secretary to the IRO, delivered the sermon, while Felix Harricharan brought greetings to the association on behalf of Neil Parsanlal, Minister of Information.

Both insightful addresses touched on the continued relevance of librarians and libraries in the context of a changing environment.

Peter Telfer and the Mawasi Experience provided lively accompaniment in the form of drumming, vocals and music. After the service, LATT hosted a reception for attendees at the National Library and Information System Authority (NALIS) Building.
