Hello I am taking a trip in September to a small village in Mexico. The village has a library which is closed, there is no one available to work in that library. I have been purchasing credits and also trading books to take there. I took approximately 30 books in July to this village for the children, and it just was not enough. The children begged me to bring more. If you have an extra credit or two to spare take a look at my bookshelf. See if there is something you want or need, or gift me a credit if you are able. I am trying so hard to give the gift of reading.

Thank you so much everyone for ordering!! I am so blessed to have found this site a year or so ago. The amount of books I am able to take just makes me feel so proud.

 

Anything else you all are able to do I appreciate it!!!

Rachel, where in Mexico are you going?   Just curious, as I lived in Mexico City for over 20 years.  Even in such a big city (one of the largest in the world), the public libraries would make a person cry; I can just imagine a little town!   I've been back in the USA now and still can't get over how awesome our libraries are here.

Let me talk to our boss. We often get children's books in Spanish or Spanish/English in our random children's book shipments, and they don't sell well here. He might be willing to let me have a few of them to send you.
