Vybz Kartel just released a statement saying that he is working on a project to build a library in the Big Yard community, located right off of Mannings Hill Road.
The library will be called the 'Adidja Palmer Library and Net Cafe' and is expected to be opened by mid-April.
"I spoke to a high-ranking officer from Constant Spring Police Station, a Mr. Wray Palmer, who gave me the idea. He said instead of giving money to the residents which is like a hand-to-mouth kinda thing, why not build something that the community at large can benefit from forever, like a library. That's where I got the idea," says Kartel when speaking about the matter.
He claims that he will be going about this the right way be seeking formal permission from city officials to open the library but has complete confidence that he will not encounter any problems in doing so.
The residents of the community are all very supportive of the idea. "We have teachers of the prominent high schools who reside in the community who are more than willing to take on the task of monitoring and operating the library. We will also be asking private-sector members in the area to foot the monthly bill."
He is also accepting book donations and is also hoping to receive an air conditioning unit for the library.. all donations can be sent to his publicist, Claude Mills -- 14 Kirk Avenue, Havendale.
