ECU Assists 'Viva Greenville'

ECU’s Joyner Library has joined a partnership with “Viva Greenville,” the first community Hispanic paper in the region, to inform eastern North Carolina’s Hispanic community about the library’s services, activities and resources, including a large selection of resources written in Spanish.

“Viva Greenville” distributes 5,000 free copies of its publication to more than 100 locations in Pitt, Beaufort, Greene, Wilson and Lenoir counties. It provides information on local news, healthcare, education and social activities. The newspaper also has an online site at

“We are pleased to partner with the East Carolina University Joyner Library, which has amazing facilities and resources,” said the newspaper’s publisher, Juan Pablo Giometti. “I invite everyone in our community to visit and enjoy this fantastic place and to read the monthly column in ‘Viva Greenville.’”

Mark Sanders, reference librarian and outreach coordinator at Joyner Library, will provide the content for “Viva Greenville” and answer reader questions.

“I look forward to reaching out to the Hispanic community and inviting them to take advantage of the library’s resources and services,” Sanders said.

“These resources are not only for students and faculty, but for all citizens of our region,” he said.
