Library for 10,000 Moroccan Berbers

by Erickson Creative Group
Oct 18, 2007

Local inspiration fuels project expansion.

Numerous developments have arisen during the last month as a result of Moroccan locals' commitment and excitement for this partnership with Erickson Creative Group. The village of Amzrai has donated land and their historic Kasbah to the project for restoration and location of the regional library. In addition, 24 families from the village have committed to donating labor for the construction and one family has promised to provide volunteer librarians. Also, three neighboring villages have become interested in the project and have requested libraries in their villages. Families in these villages have already committed to donating land and/or buildings for the libraries. The local effort is making this a very widespread success and will result in over 5000 children and adults having access to reading materials. Having a library in each village, rather than one for the entire region, will provide access to reading materials to women and girls; a development that was requested by the locals.
