Nkhanga Library

In an earlier post I wrote of the library project in Nkhanga, Zambia that has been spearheaded by Prof. Mwizenge Tembo, Professor of Sociology at Bridgewater College, Virginia, USA .

In a piece of good news for 2012 Prof. Tembo has reported on ‘mission accomplished’.

On December 20th, after a long and tortuous journey,  over thousands of miles, 3,092 donated books packed in 65 carton boxes were successfully delivered to the new Nkhanga Village Library in Lundazi in Eastern Zambia.

When the truck containing the books finally arrived at the the library more than forty men, women and children were waiting there to help unload.

The pictures tell this story better than I could, so here are some of them.
