On Their Way!
15,000 books and 11 computers are now on their way to the Navajo Nation Library in Window Rock, Arizona.
The donation is the second in Reader to Reader’s multi-year Navajo Nation Library Book Drive, which has a goal of 100,000 books and 100 computers.
Today’s donation raises the current total to 30,000 books and 20 computers.
The books will not only build the resources at the Navajo Nation Library but also across the entire 27,000 square-mile Navajo Nation. Books will be used in branch libraries in Kayenta and Ganado, at eight Boys & Girls Clubs across the reservation, and in local schools.
The next donation is scheduled for November and we are already packing our first boxes for that shipment.
A special thank you to David White of Exclusive Car Service for the use of his warehouse for storage and helping us load with his forklift. He saved us hours, and also our backs!
