It is a library facility that could have cost government over a million Pula, but the BIHL Trust delivered the project at a far less cost by engaging the local community to help in the construction and painting, thereby reducing the costs considerably in the process.

With its painted and decorated exterior as well as tiled floor, brand new furniture and over 100 new books for pupils, the completed library facility, now bears the look of an expensively built structure. It used to be a run-down school kitchen infested with bats, with no ceiling, and the floor was a heap of ash, making it unsuitable for a pupils' reading room.
