The results are in. OLA’s challenge to Super Conference delegates to contribute $10 to the OLA Africa Project to build a joint school library/public library in Kenya has resulted in $27,297.70 being donated. This is close to 70% of what is needed to build our community library. We think that is marvellous! (Charmaine Crooks gave $500 after her presentation at the closing luncheon!)
If you did not get a chance to give your $10, you still can! We are giving
ourselves until February 28 to finish the job. A committee of prominent vendors at EXPO 2006 are getting behind us to try to reach our goal. The whole library community is at work together!
