Pink chairs for the Girls' Library
We have started acquiring chairs as the funds come in. We have bought 80 pink seat shells for Girls and 30 legs; we still need more funds to buy 50 legs and their chairs will be complete. We have bought 50 birch jules chairs for the lower level boys' library and we still need funds to buy 50 legs and 50 more complete(shell+legs) chairs and the lower level will be done. They are ready to assemble products that can be shipped into Nigeria in parts. We buy them at IKEA, Atlanta. Jules and Gilbert product line.
The upper level boys library will experience heavier use so we will stock it with Birch Gilbert. This is stronger and more expensive by $10/chair. We have only acquired one.
So far, all chairs are with the laser-etcher who will inscribe words and logo as shown on the chairs. This is a theft-deterrent and will also boost the image of the library.
The trained librarians have begun manual cataloging of the books.
One of the donors happened to be visiting that part of Nigeria and she saw the building and was very excited . She called to thank me and is willing to talk to Global Foundation if need be.
