Japan‘s Grant assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project-Updates


The Palau Public Library operated a bookmobile provided by the FY 2016 Grassroots Grant Assistance. Stocked with two hundred books, the bookmobile visited both public and private elementary schools and preschools in Koror and Babeldaob, giving children the opportunity not only to read books, but also to enjoy their story time together. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a shortage of drivers for the bookmobile. It is hoped the vacancy is filled soon so that children can have better access to a variety of reading materials to improve their literacy skills.
