We loan because...
Without food, who can afford books? Without knowledge, what good is income? Plus, librarians are natural lenders!

About us
Librarians, library students, and other information-profession-oriented folks dedicated to helping raise the standard of literacy and education in the developing world through giving people a boost out of poverty.
