Buy India a Library: UPDATE

First up, the Buy India a Library team wishes to thank everyone that has donated to the project.  Right now, our total amount raised stands at £665, which is more than half of what we need to accomplish our goal of purchasing a village library!  Awesome!

If you have any questions about how the money we raise is being spent, please read our post here: Who spends the money we’re raising, and how?

And finally, Andromeda did this really great interview at ALA Midwinter that explains the project and how it came to be.

Thanks for everything, and if you have a moment or a spare dollar/quid/krone, please help us give India a library!
