Pastula said it was not the first time NMC donated books to the Rota library.

He said during its grand opening, NMC donated eight boxes of assorted books.

Joeten Kiyu Public Library Executive Director John Gonzales said they are very happy to receive the book donations from  NMC.

“We are grateful for the renewed collaboration between NMC and the state public libraries — this can help so much in serving the needs of the community, particularly the high school and college population,” Gonzales said.

Last year, U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan’s office donated over 50 boxes of assorted books to the Rota library.

Gonzales and the CNMI library council are urging everyone to use facilities and resources of the three state libraries on Saipan, Tinian and Rota.
