what it costs to buy a library

So, how much does it cost to buy India a library?


If each of Andromeda’s followers chipped in: £1250/426 = £2.93 each ($4.55, 25.84 Danish kroner).


If each of Jan’s followers chipped in: £1.76 ($2.73, 15.52 DKK).


If each of Ned’s followers chipped in: £1.44 ($2.24, 12.70 DKK).

You know what else you could buy for $2.24, plus or minus?

    This is a great idea. My section at work, over the last few years, has been buying libraries rather than Christmas presents for each other. So far we have funded a few donkey libraries and collections, collections in India and Indigenous literacy projects in Australia. I hope people donate lots (I have just made my donation). Room to read is also doing some interesting library projects (and you can even fund training library workers in developing countries) see Room to read
