Dominican Republic

02 Dec

Recently, a patron visited the Dominican Republic on a family vacation and stated that there was very little in the public libraries. In fact, here is a comment from an encyclopedia:
In general, public library collections are few and small, mostly containing only a few hundred books. Exceptions are the public library in Santo Domingo, with holdings of about 35,000 volumes, and in BanĂ­ with 38,000 volumes.
