Libraries: Someone CARES!
As a follow up to the library subject, it turns out there is a netwrok of public libraries in Lebanon. It is very modest, but they do have free internet access. The main Beirut library is the size of an average apartment with a maid's room.
Someone is working on improving that however. They are adequately called the Friends of Public Libraries Association in Lebanon.
You can donate the original Russian print of War and Peace, but they prefer connect the dots books.
One of the book donation centers is literally 10 medium sized steps from where I am now. Damn, I thought I was inquisitive, now I have to scratch that out of my C.V.
