Chavel's Library and Learning Center, One of Five New Libraries Now Open!

In February, Ethiopia Reads opened the doors on five new libraries in Addis Ababa. These new libraries were opened in partnership with government schools and sponsors in the United States, who provided the funding for books, furniture, staff and training. The libraries are all open six days a week. Since opening, each has attracted hundreds of children every day.

At Chavel's Library and Learning Center, pictured here, boys and girls from Yewket Fana Elementary School are drawn by 2,000 books in English as well as local Ethiopian languages. This colorful, light-filled room is a gift from Noel and Tamara Cunningham of Denver, Colorado.

Other libraries are now open in:

Atse Na-Od Primary and Secondary Public School, a gift from Books for Life International of Wichita, Kansas.

Dejach Belay Zeleke No. 1 Elementary and Secondary Public School, a gift made in Memory of Yemegnushal Haile by Behailu Mekbib of San Francisco, CA.

Agazian No. 2 Elementary Public School , a gift from Lily, Ramah & Matthan Lakew of CA, in fond memory of Dr. Dawit Fassil.

Ethiopia Andenet Elementary and Junior Secondary Public School, a gift from the Meredith Family of San Francisco, California.

At least five more libraries are due this fall.

When in Addis, please visit our libraries!

Thanks to all of our library sponsors for these wonderful gifts.
