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.
