Several times during my library career I have had the pleasure of setting up libraries in other parts of the world. In 2004, I spent a summer living with a Zulu family in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa and established a library at Mbazwana Elementary School. In 2006, I was asked to start a library in Guaimaca, Honduras at a mission. I went again to Guaimaca and set up a library at a school. It would be fun to go back to those schools and see how the libraries are doing!
This summer I attended a Climate Reality training in Minneapolis for three days with 1700 other people and former Vice President Al Gore. Now I'm a trained Climate Reality Leader ready to get started on climate activism.
