. . .

In 2003, after my first semester of library school, I volunteered to help set-up a school library in rural South Africa. The experience underscored the importance of thinking about the communities we serve and how we must be careful to not push our own agendas of what libraries should be. Here's a video* from the 2007 IFLA Conference in Durban, South Africa.

I'd write more but it's time to retrieve my laundry from the washer and then gear up for my late night.

I had the good fortune to go to South Africa on vacation. Went on a Safari (near Kruger Nat. Park) and to Capetown, I loved it. Would go back in a heartbeat.
