Libraries in Africa - Art Reception at Standley Lake

by: 
Joanna, Standley Lake Library

I always love hearing about the inspiring efforts to build libraries or bring books to children in third world countries, such as the Donkey Mobile Libraries and The Camel Bookmobile (fiction based on a true story). Turns out a nonprofit group here in Arvada is doing the same thing.  They are called SCOPE International, and among other projects, they develop school and community libraries in Kenya.  They have an exhibit of bright and interesting photographs on the display wall at Standley Lake this month, and they are having a reception this Saturday, July 13 at 2:00 in the Standley Lake meeting room.  Come learn more about their noble endeavors and adventures!
