Send Library Books to Palestine: Librarians and Archivists with Palestine Launches Matloub Campaign

Librarians and Archivists with Palestine (LAP) and the Tamer Institute for Community Education are thrilled to announce the launch of Matloub / Wanted: Library Books for Palestine, a campaign that seeks to raise awareness about issues facing libraries in Palestine and the political context in which they operate, while at the same time offering material support for the libraries' collections.

Librarians and Archivists with Palestine (LAP) and Palestinian partner organization Tamer Institute for Community Education have gathered requests for books from seventeen community libraries across the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Visitors to the Matloub/ Wanted websiteare invited to purchase these requested books and contribute towards shipping costs. LAP and the Tamer Institute will then coordinate delivery of the books to the requesting libraries.
