This past weekend, May 19-20th 2012 over two hundred residents of Copan Ruinas, Honduras and ten surrounding rural communities came together to celebrate the culmination of a three-year project funded by the Finnish Consulate of Central America. Thanks to this project there are now books in ten Chorti communities accessible only by horseback or four-wheel drive vehicles. While we recently have received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to strengthen the existing network of libraries (see link) in order to continue to serve these communities we have a very real need for a mobile library "Bibliobus" which can reach these communities regardless of the weather and make new books and new programs available to these underserved Hondurans. No donation is too small. Please donate whatever you can. Muchas gracias.
