LOGOS HOPE, the international floating bookshop, will make its seventh visit to Jamaica from January 21 to March 22, this year.

The vessel, which was named Logos II when it visited Jamaica on previous occasions, will make a stop in both Montego Bay, St James, and Kingston.

Members of the public will have access to the ship in Montego Freeport wharf from January 21 to February 14.

The floating bookshop will dock at Rockfort in Kingston for the period February 17 to March 22.

Logos Hope offers more than books and features a fully air-conditioned deck that is open to the public to explore.

The vessel also brings an expanded selection of more than 7,500 books that cover a range of subjects, including science, sports, hobbies and religion. With children's titles, academic texts, dictionaries, atlases and more, there is something for all the family to choose from.

The all-volunteer crew and staff comprise approximately 400 people representing 45 different nations who offer a unique example of unity in cultural diversity.

Logos Hope is operated by the international charity OM Ships International. In almost 40 years of service, the organisation has welcomed 40 million visitors up the gangways in over 150 countries and territories around the world. The ship is hosted in Jamaica by OM Caribbean. www.omcaribbean.com.
