Tell our readers about your overseas project
The overseas portion of our program currently consists of a “Books To The Bush” program where donated books are put on racks and loaded in vans to drive to remote areas where people might not otherwise be able to enjoy the library experience. An education major or two from the University accompany the driver and provide reading time, phonetic training and in some cases even tutoring. They bring a rug for the children to sit on, sometimes this is a first experience as well. The children are given library member cards and taught how to care for books.
