New English language books at WOA Center!

The Window on America Center is happy to announce that due to the efforts of its Peace Corps Volunteer, Karin Jones, it has received a small shipment of English-language books to add to its ever-expanding collection.

The books range from modern novels to childrens books, reference books and more. The books arrived from an organization called International Book Project, a U.S.-based, international nonprofit whose mission is to promote education and literacy while broadening Americans understanding of their neighbors by sending quality used books overseas.

Each year IBP sends more than 150,000 books to schools, libraries, churches, nonprofits, and Peace Corps volunteers in over 40 developing countries, and has sent more than 5.8 million books abroad since 1966.

Thanks to a grant from a long-term donor, International Book Project is able to offer matching grants for schools and libraries in former Soviet States. Using these funds, and with the funds Ms. Jones raised from the Minnesota Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and from a personal contribution from John C. George, the library will also soon be receiving up to 800 additional books!

We will keep you posted as we receive our new shipments!
