EWI Associates Participate in Community Service Project

By Darlene Kerr on Wednesday, June 1st, 2016


Recently, EWI associates and friends donated new and gently used books toward establishing a children’s library for the Bhutanese Nepali Community of Columbus. EWI librarians spearheaded the drive to celebrate Library Week 2016.  In total, 560 board books, picture books,  new-reader and first-chapter books, pre-teen and young adult titles were delivered to the BNCC center. Due to the overwhelming success of the drive,  a second delivery is anticipated for later this month.Book Drive - Angi

Bood Drive - JoshThe Bhutanese Nepali Community of Columbus  is a community-based non-profit organization founded in 2009 to serve Bhutanese refugees who came to central Ohio after spending about two decades in the refugee camps in eastern Nepal. Columbus has resettled 15-20,000 refugees.

The books will be used in child and adult programs, and make a wide range of books readily available to children for reading pleasure. Thanks to all who generously contributed to the effort!
