We have covered in the past the appalling damage being done to Ukraine’s libraries. It appears to be a deliberate ploy to destroy not just human lives, but the country’s very identity. 

More than 600 public libraries and 2,000 school libraries have been damaged or destroyed by Russian troops. 

Ukraine librarians have asked Libraries Connected (our library chiefs’ organisation) to help them fund a mobile library to reach communities that have nothing.

LC hopes to raise £10,000 to buy a used vehicle and drive it to Ukraine. Money very well spent, we think. But not yet fully raised!

The appeals runs for eight weeks until 5 June 2024
