We have a big project for next year. It’s something new and very exciting.
It’s been at the planning stage for a while now but,like everything new that we embark on in life there is a lot to do and think about.
Wait for it, are you ready?. …………well, we will be operating a travelling library!
We will be travelling around Algiers visiting hospitals, orphanages, schools and children in the community. We will be giving these kids the opportunity to regularly look at a variety of books that they would otherwise not have access to. We will do fun story telling sessions and a good dose of craft related activities too. We want these children to have lots of fun but to also do a spot of learning at the same time.
Could you help us with this?
Well firstly, what we really need is books:_
They must be in either English or Arabic.
They can be gently used or new.
They must be suitable for ages between 0 -14 years.
They must not be text books.
All titles are of course very welcome but just in case you need some inspiration and ideas I have compiled an Amazon wish list of just a few books that would be suitable. That list can be found here
We also need craft related items- pencils, crayons and children’s scissors that can be used for the activities.
To gather books for our currently empty shelves, we will also be organising a number of book drives and other activities, I hope you will join in the fun
Oh, and if you have any ideas please do share-I would really love to hear them!
As always, thank you all so much for your support!
