Book Donations for a Library in the Philippines

by Darlene Foster

This weekend an article in the Delta Optimist caught my eye. It was about a local resident who, along with her siblings, is starting a library in her hometown in the Philippines. The library lacks a children’s section and she is asking for donations. I dropped off a box full today and she was very appreciative. She mentioned the kids in the town have text books but lack story books to read. She said, “There is nothing like holding a book in your hand and reading it, for a child.” The library will be named after her father who was an educator and writer.

You can read the rest of the article here, on the Delta Optimist.

If any of you have children’s books, yours or others, you would like to donate, please let me know and I will get them to Mary if getting to Tsawwassen is not a possibility. You can contact me at darlene.foster (at) telus.net to make arrangements.

I would love to think that children in the Philippines will be reading books from the members of CWILL BC.
