We’d like to invite you all to participate in a book drive to re-build the libraries of Myanmar that were destroyed by Cyclone Nargis. Montana native John Badgley has enlisted libraries all over the state, and will be traveling through in early July to pick books up. You can read more about his group here: www.nargislibrary.org.
If you’d like to donate, he suggests the following guidelines:
“Our Myanmar libraries cannot accept proselytizing books on religion or politics. And science or technology books of pre-2000 vintage are not so useful unless they are classic authors or still-relevant teaching titles. Paperbacks of purient nature are also not accepted. Generally, hardbacks/softbacks of NYT quality, especially children’s books in any way educational are most welcome.”
Please let us know when dropping off your books that they are for the book drive. Mr. Badgley will be coming through Livingston around July 11, so we’d appreciate getting donations by Saturday, July 7.
