  3. I heard about this effort via a Facebook post from Buzzfeed. My son fought in Mosul in 2008 for the US Army. How may I help from the US to collect and send books for your library? What kinds of books do you need/want? New, used, OK? Thank you!

  4. Hello! It could be fine to have an address to send book from others country. I’m an italian architect from Sicily, but living in Barcelona, Spain. It would a pleasure for me to contribute sending some italian or spanish book. What do you think?

  5. I have heard that once there was a great library in Iraq and crusaders throw lots of hand written books in river.. And water turned into colour of ink… Not sure if that is true.. But my point is once Iraq was a sacred place of learning but now a war zone.
    Hope to see bright dawn of Iraq again
    Aameen

  6. I am trying to write about Rohingya Muslims.. But not yet finished as the more I read about the atrocities the more I am heartened..
