This is great news for the University of Puerto Rico and for the country as a whole. As a territory of the United States that suffered immensely after hurricane Maria the efforts to restore the country to its previous splendor has been massive and here at Padmore Culture we are very happy to hear that an effort is being made to bring more books and education into the hands of the population. A couple of people from our staff are from Puerto Rico and we are happy to shed light on the situation.
