First Ever Delivery of Books

We would like to invite you to view our newly released video which contains footage of books being delivered by horseback and by foot to remote Chorti communities near Copan Ruinas, Honduras.  Just click on this link to see some of the people who will benefit by your donation.  With a fully equipped "bibliobus" or mobile library we could put smiles on so many more faces.  During the rainy season many rural communities in Honduras are only accessible by vehicles with four wheel drive thus these communities often go months without seeing new books.  Books we can find but we need your help to purchase the vehicle.
