La Roca Library Update: Donations Needed!

PLEASE COULD YOU DONATE MATERIALS NEEDED AT LA ROCA LIBRARY? 

 

2008MariaLuisaLibrarianAndDaughterLaRoca-small


This is an
update on the La Roca Library project, an international librarianship project
supported by southern California librarians including SLA-SD member Daria
DeCooman.

La Roca
Librarian Maria Luisa Mendez Lozada, on board at La Roca since October 2008,
reports the library needs the below items. The Reed Elsevier Cares grant,
received in spring 2008, has already funded the library’s physical upgrade and
continues to pay Maria Luisa’s salary as well as
that of Isidro Santiago, who
manages the La Roca Library’s computers. However, the RE Cares grant doesn’t
comprise sufficient funds to cover the cost of additional items needed for the
library at this time. 

Please, if you have any of the below items, won’t
you donate them to the La Roca Library? New or used items will be gladly
accepted. (For any specific donation, US-based nonprofit Corazon de Vida (www.corazondevida.org), which is helping
administer the library’s RE Cares grant, can provide a letter for tax
purposes.)

If you have any of the below-listed items to donate, please
contact me. I’ll get the items delivered to La Roca.

Happy
holidays,
