Biblioteca de la Florecita

A dear college friend of mine, Emily, became a missionary down in Comayagua, Honduras with the Missioners of Christ after graduating college last year. Recently the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal have provided her with space to start a community library. This library is geared toward the school children in the community that do not have access to the nearest public library. Here is the link to the project page for the library. More detailed info can be found there.

She and the Franciscans are to the point where they need to start filling the library with books. Sadly, purchasing mass quantities of books can be very expensive. Emily, has set up an Amazon wish list, which can be found here, for a number of books and other odd items needed in the library (like globes and such). Since the library is in Honduras, it is necessary for the books to be in a Spanish or in a Spanish/English edition. If you know of anyone who happens to have such books lying around the house and feels the urge to donate them via mail to the Missioners of Christ for the community library, which they are calling The Library of the Little Flower, Emily has put a mailing address on the project page.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
