You can help send books to Kosovo

Lexington Herald-Leader | 09/29/2004 | Teen refugee sending books to homeland

Ardena Gojani, a teen from Kosovo, is raising money to help libraries in her war-torn native land. She's trying to raise $5,000 to buy books and shop them to her hometown of Gjakova to help replace items burnt during the war.

How you can help:

Contact the International Book Project
1440 Delaware Avenue
Lexington, KY 40505 (USA)

Cheques should be made payable to the International Book Project, but with 'Kosovo Book Project' in the memo line of the cheque. Donations are tax-deductible.

The International Book Project also accepts donations of textbooks, encyclopaedias, and journals for shipment to 100 countries where such items are not easy to come by. I've used them, for example, to find a home for withdrawn texts that were out-of-date for the library's purposes but could be used to help medical personnel and their patients overseas.
