Good morning. I am honored to be here today as we celebrate the opening of the Lubuto Mthunzi Youth Library. This library represents the ongoing commitment of the United States to support Zambia’s development, in this instance by improving the lives of children and young people. I would like to thank the Lubuto Library Partners for all the hard work they continue to do opening the doors to literature and learning. I also wish to thank our partners in the Zambian Government and other colleagues here today for supporting this unique occasion.
