"Collecting the Books" 2018
In 2018, the experiences we had communicated upon return from Malawi from the installation of the libraries, and the subsequent reports we received throughout the ensuing year from MOH about the use of the libraries, acted as a catalyst toward even greater enthusiasm for expanding the collections. We had an army of hard workers, gathering on Saturdays, winter weather notwithstanding, to sort, label, box, and shrink wrap almost twice the number of boxes as last year! This time almost 7000 books were collected and in June 2018 left by container for Malawi. This will increase the holdings of each of our 6 libraries to 2000 books! Also, a local high school donated 10 hardwood library tables for our facilities, valuable additions to the facilities! This year's shipment of 135 boxes of books and library tables exceeded 7400 pounds!

Of course collecting the books, and getting them to Malawi, is only part of the task. How to use them once they arrive?
