FOKAL (Foundation for Knowledge and Liberty) supports 35 community libraries throughout Haiti from Port-Salut to Pestel to Port-au-Prince to Cap-Haitian. From its humble beginnings, it has grown to be an organization that also supports arts and culture programming, has a debate program, and supports grassroots initiatives and water projects. How has this organization impacted Haiti and through its work strengthened the roots of a healthy society?

The Library's Hispanic Division will sponsor a day-long symposium, "Libraries and Human Development in Haiti: The Work of Fondation Connaissance et Liberté (FOKAL)" from 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10, in LJ 119 on the first floor of the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First Street S.E., Washington, D.C. This event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. Contact Cynthia Acosta at (202) 707-2013, caco@loc.gov.
