This today from Douglas in Bratislava:
I want to share with you a bit of delight I enjoyed the other day, even more than getting books in the mail. We have received enough books that my desk was getting a bit cluttered, so I moved the stacks to a table at the back of my classroom. There they will accumulate until we find some funding for shelves in the room where our library will be. One of my students noticed the books, started looking through them, and then approached me. “Mr. Dart,” she said. “May I borrow this?” It was a copy of “Little Women”. Later, two other students approached me with books in their hands, each wanting to borrow one. The first was “Fahrenheit 451″ and the other, “Schindler’s List”.
Say Waaa Hooo! The library is open for business!!!
He says he has books arriving every day, and that’s just through airmail … Douglas can’t wait to see what the slow boats bring. Good work, folks, and thanks for helping to strengthen the good.
