April 15, 2011

Yesterday Milcah (one of the Renekeng teachers) and I drove to Maseru in her tiny little car to pick up our books…. ALL THIRTY-THREE BOXES!!!!! (Five extra boxes were donated to my third school, Lepholisa, by the volunteer heading the African Library Project in Lesotho, so now I’ll be able to start a small library for that school.)
Of course we couldn’t get all the boxes into Milcah’s Polo, so we left with only nineteen of them. Another volunteer, Shanthi, was heading in today to pick up her books with her school’s truck; she offered to bring the rest of our boxes to Tabola. So there you go…we now have books to begin two more libraries. I know that Lepholisa’s will be small, but it’s a start! I’m so glad that we’ll be able to set up the libraries before the really cold weather sets in; we’ll create a cozy library room for the children to come into during their cold lunch breaks (they eat outside, for the most part.)
