Book Club

The UWI, Open Campus, Belize in collaboration with Krem TV has embarked on a project to bring together camaraderie with currently enrolled students of the UWI Belize Centre, UWI alumni and other interested members of the Belizean community at large to become members of the newly established UWI, Open Campus, Belize, Book Club which was inaugurated Dec. 10th, 2010.

This Club aims at encouraging its members to maintain and commence the good habit of reading books that are "outside of the box "and to expose readers to varying thoughts from national and international authors. Opportunities will also be available for promoting good reading habits, as well as socialization, holding discussions and debates, and cohesiveness between and among its members.
