Rotary Apia/LAS Book Donation Project – 2012 – 2013

Throughout 2012 the LAS worked with Rotary Apia to arrange a 20ft container of donated books and furniture for school libraries in Samoa.  Books were donated by the Ocean of Books project from New Zealand, NZ Rotary groups and NZ Libraries and transportation to Samoa was aided by Jenners Shipping and Mainfreight NZ.  The load of books included Rotary Dictionaries and NZ$5000 worth of dictionaries, atlases and chapter books with funding from NZ Rotary.  In February 2013 LAS Members joined with Rotary Apia to sort the boxes of books ready for distribution to the schools around Samoa during 2013.
