Welcome to the BookOfCinz Library
I am beyond pleased to finally be able to launch the BookOfCinz Library. I started this platform with the mission to get people to:
- Read More
- Read Widely
- READ CARIBBEAN
This Library is another step in fulfilling this mission. This library is my way of filling the gap for those who cannot afford to purchase books monthly, to assist in making newly released books accessible and a way to encourage persons to read.
The BOC Library will be a true reflection of my tagline- Caribbean Girl Reading the World. It will be stocked with Caribbean Literature, Books written by Black Women and People of Colour. I am curating a library collection filled with books I read and loved, even the ones I feel guilty about reading (looking at you self-help). I do hope you will find a book you will love in this Library.
The Library started out as a free initiative but we saw the books being returned in horrible conditions or not being returned at all. Moving forward, there will be a subscription fee for the library. Once this is paid, you will gain access to the library.
