Meanwhile, on the other side of the world…
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the first graders at Montclair Elementary School in Omaha, Nebraska, and from my very own Aunt Liz and Aunt Ann, the library here in Mongolia is growing by leaps and bounds!
This is absolutely incredible. The first boxes began to arrive about a week ago, and last Saturday we had a special class so students could come and see all of the wonderful new books that you’ve sent them for their new English library. This week I’ve been busy cataloging all the new books and putting them into an Excel spreadsheet so students can begin to check them out. I’ve got some pictures to share with you, so you can all see just how excited everybody was to get such a wonderful gift this December.
As the books continue to arrive, I’ll keep taking pictures and posting them as I can. Also, the students around here are going to write the 1st graders of Montclair Elementary a big pile of thank you cards that hopefully I can send off to Nebraska in the near future. From me, my fellow teachers, and my students, THANK YOU!
