The staff of the National Library and Information System Authority (NALIS) hosted their Emancipation Day celebration in style. The former Fire Service building, now part of the National Library Complex, waxed warm with traditional wear and displays from the African mainland.
The Second Annual NALIS Emancipation Competition had some nine participants vying for the coveted prize of a trip for two to Tobago. Participants, representing various nations of Africa, exhibited their knowledge of the countries which they represented.
Mindy Mason representing Zimbabwe, walked away with the first prize. The Second Prize went to Sylvia Edwards representing Ethiopia and the Third to Crystal Rennes representing Senegal. The judges were Joan Richards, former librarian and Dela Obika and Carlyle Wilson of NJAC.
