May and April Book Delivery

San Francisco Burmese Commnunity Bookdrive, supported by the Burmese in the Bay Area, donated two boxes of books to a self-help library and a non-profit education program. 

This past April, New Society Library, a self-help library in TarMwe, received a box of book.

Another box was accepted for a Kachin non-profit education program by a prominent woman activist, Daw Baut Jar. More books have been promised for FFSS Yangon Libarry by Kyaw Thu and his wife, when they met with lead volunteers, during April in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Burmese Community receives books, especially children's books, in the form of donations from Burmese families and American Libraries. These books are packed in 1 1/2 cubic feet boxes, which holds 50-70 books. This bookdrive began last year and since then had delivered books to four libraries: New Light Direction Library, FFSS Libraruy, Thein Daung Monastic Library in Taung Gyi, and another monastic library in Peypin.
