Today! Lubuto Project @ Washington DC's Politics & Prose

This just in from DC librarian Jane Meyers: Politics & Prose is conducting a book drive for the Lubuto Library Project, a DC-based charity that creates libraries for street children, orphans, and other vulnerable youth affected by HIV/AIDS in southern African countries. P&P will give a 20% discount on all book purchases for Lubuto libraries made between April 19th and May 31. Lubuto is seeking donations of new books that fit their specific needs. A description of the types of books that are needed is available in the store, and the children’s department staff will be happy to give suggestions for appropriate titles. Jane Meyers, founder of the project, will be available to answer questions and discuss the project at P&P on Saturday, May 6, from 1 to 4 p.m.
