Read a Book, Share its Treasures!

May 27, 2008 – Friends of the St. Thomas Public Libraries (FOSTPL) invites the public to be on the lookout for posters depicting its "Read a Book, Share Its Treasures!" campaign. Funded by a grant from FirstBank as part of its corporate support of literacy programs, the posters portray community members of all ages sharing a classic fairy tale.
The promotion is meant to stimulate parents, friends, colleagues and family members to spend time reading with and to each other. "We'd like to encourage the public to visit our public libraries across the territory and to recognize that the Friends of St. Thomas Public Libraries will continue to serve St. Thomas for the next 25 years with your help and generous contributions," says FOSTPL member, businessman and community activist Jason Budsan.
As a former advocacy committee chair, Budsan provided coordination in 2007 among FOSTPL Board members and models alongside graphic artist Louis Ible Jr., who is a multiple winner of V.I. Carnival Committee's Calypso King title and M.S.I. Calypso of the Year Awards. With input from FOSTPL, a theme of sharing the treasures to be found within the pages of books took shape. Ible's photographic art has brought life to animated twosomes that toss bits and pieces of "Little Red Riding Hood" among them.
The posters are slated to appear in local and school libraries throughout St. Thomas. For more information, e-mail helping@fostpl.org.
