Here’s Andromeda Yelton‘s TEDx talk from this past June at Princeton Public Library in New Jersey. In 6 minutes and 31 seconds, Andromeda talks about how her and a gang of librarians (see below) earned enough money to build a library in India and then raise enough for 100 extra books, a newspaper subscription, and then, to top it all off, 4 bo0kmobiles in Africa. All of this, might I add, was done through Twitter/Blogging/Social Media.
I was lucky enough to be part of the gang of librarians I mentioned above. Much love to the work of Andromeda, Ned Potter, and Jan Holmquist on the awesome Buy India A Library Project.
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!
