Library Labours for BCI Academy

Our Encyclopedias!
Our Encyclopedias!

Have you ever wondered what use libraries are now that we have internet, e-books, computers, tablets, cell phones and numerous other ways of receiving data?  Well, they may not be in vogue here in Canada, but we sure have need for them in the third world!

Mountains of work!
Mountains of work!

BCI Academy is one of the only schools in Debre Zeyit to have encyclopedias.  We are grateful to the many generous donors who gave books, time, money and manpower to pack up the books, get them shipped, meet the pallet in Ethiopia, help books to arrive at the school, unpack the books, catalogue the books and label them, get the books on the shelves in proper sections, and then got to experience the excitement of the children who anxiously awaited the time they could use the books.

Anxiously awaiting their books

These books will help the students at BCI Academy be able to do research, practice their English, learn responsibility, and have their world enlightened and broadened.  We also have a new librarian who is working very hard to get everything ready!  We are excited to be able to share the world of books with the children.  Thank you again for your part in making this happen.
