Thanks to generous donors, our project to get the Aya de Youpougon series to each of our twelve village libraries in Burkina Faso has been a big success. So far we have purchased a total of 24 books (2 per library) and have been able to order 18 more. We ordered them from a local bookstore a couple of months ago and are waiting for the books to come in, and they should be here by the end of April (shipping to Burkina takes a little while). We're very excited to get the books and send them to the libraries. Librarians say that the Aya books that are at the libraries now are very popular, and reader eagerly await the rest of the series in order to find out what happens to Aya and her friends. The comics are very popular because they are filled with West African slang, familiar images, relatable characters, and situations that are common in everyday life in West Africa. They are also great for everyone from kids to adults. We can't wait to get the rest of the books in the series to the libraries!
