PIER operates two bookmobiles that visit all 33 public schools in Roatan every 3 weeks.  Last year we loaned 20,911 English and Spanish language books to 1,809 students every three weeks (total 12,662 student visits).

Our reading specialists made 964 reading presentations in classrooms.  

  • 191 teachers and 164 parents attended workshops
  • Promoted independent reading time in the classroom
  • Printed & distributed reading & math monthly assessments
  • Surveyed 447 students to evaluate reading comprehension

Your donations keep the bookmobile on the road.

We can't do it without you!

Library

This year library services sparkle!  Children and youth arrived to use computers for homework and to check out books.  Before they knew it, they were competing in our Pirate's Treasure Chest Adventures -

  • Reading at least two books each visit and reporting on them for other readers.  
  • Completing Math Mazes & Contests
  • Exploring the world of science.  This month they built animal and plant cells, collected and categorized shells and leaves, and with the Marine Park coach explored the reef shallows -- all corresponding with the national monthly curriculum.
