Follow Janet Lee’s sabbatical

July 30, 2010

Janet Lee, Technical Services Librarian at the Dayton Memorial Library, is currently on sabbatical in Ethiopia. She is helping set up the Segenat Children’s and Youth Library in Mekelle, Tigray Region, Ethiopia, in conjunction with Ethiopia Reads. In May, Regis University granted Ato Yohannes Gebregeorgis, Founder and Executive Director of Ethiopia Reads, an Honorary Doctorate in Public Service for his work in literacy.

Many in the Regis community assisted Janet in her efforts to gather new or gently used children’s books to fill a library in Mekelle. For more on their efforts, see 8,000 books Ethiopia bound.

Janet will be blogging about her experiences while she’s away. You can read her posts on the Ethiopia Reads web site, or on facebook.
