Thousands of books have been delived to the remote island of Onoun, in the Federated States of Micronesia to create a major library.

Onoun was in the news last year when the local, Weipat High school ran out of food for its 250 students, that situation was quickly rectified.

Now, Weipat is renamed as the "Northwest Highschool" because it serves students from the 11 islands in the group known as the Northwesterns

The library has been established there in an effort involving other schools from the region, the local people and an NGO called The Cuthbert Project.

The founder of the Project, Bill Hagen explained moving the books to Heather Jarvis.

Presenter: Heather Jarvis
