This is a Rotary in Fife Project
Books continue to pour in from all over Fife, although it is still difficult to move them on at the moment. There are books stacked in garages, trailers, dining rooms and a bedroom in one Fife home.
Huge numbers of textbooks and library books have arrived from Madras College in St. Andrews. As readers may know, Madras is moving to a new site after the summer holidays. The new library will be half the size of the current one and many classrooms will also be smaller than presently. This has resulted in a bonanza of books for Books Abroad. Despite storage problems for Rotary in Fife members, this is too good an opportunity to turn down, when these books are coming in class sets and are perfect for our purpose.
If any of our members
has access to a Ford Transit van (or similar) and would be
willing to take a day trip to Books Abroad warehouse in Rhynie, please let Alan know. We would
be most grateful.
The last consignment of books sent out from Rhynie arrived recently in Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe where we can be sure they will be put to good use. Please keep them coming in.
Books deemed unsuitable for redistribution are resold locally to raise funds for Books Abroad, or are industrially shredded and used locally for animal bedding or composting.
