On behalf of the children and their families in Zarka , Jordan, I want to wish you very Happy Holidays. Growing with Books is grateful for the generous support of people like you. Your contributions have made it possible to open the first children's library in the town of Zarka. The love of reading and learning is being fostered as I write.
It has been 6 months since the library opened its door and we are so delighted with the progress. The library is a home for more than 100 children each day. It houses about 5,000 books in Arabic and English as well three computer stations, and provides art supplies. For the first time, children have been introduced to story time, book clubs, and much more. These opportunities would not have been available without your support. Thank you for giving the children in Zarka these life-changing opportunities.
We hope that you will continue to support Growing with Books. There is much more that we want to accomplish.
