A few months ago, we got an e-mail from a friend, Natalie, who was helping to build a small community library in Kenya. We dug through our shelves and sent over some boxes of books, and then waited to hear any news.
When we heard that the library was built and still in need of more books, we called in the troops - no one has an excess of books if not homeschooling families. So Natalie graciously offered to come out and talk to our kids about the library. She brought photos of the library being built, the community who is making it happen, and of life in Kenya in general.
