No one can dispute that books are significant nor can one deny the fact that what we know is a drop of water, and what we do not know is a vast ocean. Carl Rowan writes: “The library is the temple of learning, and learning has liberated more people than all the wars in history.” Ray Bradbury makes a similar claim: “Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.”
Lavang Library in Nghe An, Vietnam established on May 30, 2010:
We have built and stocked the following four (4) full-size Lavang Library in north and central Vietnam:
Phu Cam Cathedral, HUE (2001)
Thanh Duc Parish, DA NANG (2002)
Phat Diem Cathedral, PHAT DIEM (2003)
Diocese of Bui Chu, BUI CHU (2004)
Following are Lavang Mission Libraries we assisted with the purchase of books, bookshelves, tables, and chairs:
Diocese of Da Nang (2003)
Nuoc Ngot Parish, Diocese of Hue (2004)
Bo Cau Parish, Diocese of Phan Thiet (2008)
These libraries provide reading resources to thousands of children, young adults, and adults in North, Central, and South Vietnam.
Recognizing the importance of books and how they have enabled many to succeed in life, Vietnam Dream for Success hopes to continue this special library project by providing reading resources to poor children and young adults, especially those residing in poor areas.
By donating $2,000 or $3,000 you can help us establish and stock a small mission library in mission areas where families cannot afford to purchase books for their children. You can donate a mission library in honor of a loved one; a plaque with your name as the benefactor will be displayed at the library.
