Liverpool Public Library announces its first "Sister Library"


Liverpool Public Library announces its first "Sister Library," the Lantarang Kunda Starfish International Library in Lamin Village, The Gambia, West Africa.

The American Library Association encourages U.S. libraries to form partnerships with libraries in other countries to promote the concept of a global library community. The Liverpool Board of Trustees and the Starfish International Library formally entered the collaborative agreement in early July.

The Gambian library is only the second children's library in the country, and the only one that lets children take the books home. It was founded several years ago by Starfish International, a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation registered in New York.

Starfish International was founded in 2006 by Mam-Yassin Sarr (a Gambian) and her husband David D. Fox (an American).  Sarr is a Syracuse University doctoral student in educational leadership.
