Tripoli, 9 January 2014:
Five refurbished cultural centres have been reopened . . .[restrict]in and around Jadu, at ceremonies attended by Culture Minister Habib Al-Amin .
Besides the centre in the heart of Jadu, there are now similar restored facilities at Aljmari, Aloyvat,Mzgorh and Ondbas
All the buildings have a range of services on offer including libraries, each with an initial 400 titles, computers with internet access and printers, meeting rooms and lecture halls.
Local culture ministry official Emhemed Atrash told the Libya Herald that all five centres had been set up in the mid 1960s but thereafter received little funding and maintenance. Minister Amin explained that the refurbishment of the cultural centres around Jadu was only part of a much wider programme, aimed at other such buildings which had also been neglected and abandoned.
