Reading materials arrive in Kosovo; Rotary Clubs continue their International cooperation

Reading materials arrive in Kosovo; Rotary Clubs continue their International cooperation

The local Rotary Club was featured in this paper a few weeks, with a photo of Rotary members and their shipment of books collected for Kosovo. Rotary International has been supporting efforts to construct and supply school libraries in Kosovo, and the book collecting is just one part of this initiative. The locally collected reading materials will help fill eight libraries already built.

The Rotary shipment arrived in the urban area of Prishtina, and was met by retired Tenth District Judge Linn Slattengren, of Franconia, who has grown very active in Rotary in Kosovo. He reports by e mail correspondence that he aided getting the materials through customs, and local helpers are enthusiastically distributing the shipments of reading materials. There's about 90 other libraries in various stages of planning that look forward to receiving books. And, Rotary's coordinated supply effort has only surveyed half the country, the judge said. Judge Slattengren has been living and working in the emerging nation for a few years now, first as a quasi-government advisor assisting the process of establishing a legal system.

Lately, through his involvement in the Prishtina, Kosovo Rotary he's been working on raising funds for acquiring a leukemia testing apparatus and installing water wells at school sites.
