Rwanda Library

Washington and Lee student Logan Gibson has planned a rather unusual summer vacation — she is traveling to Rwanda this summer to build a library.
Her project has required a lot of preparation and planning and has involved quite a few folks at W&L and elsewhere, including members of the Leyburn Library staff. You can read more about it this news release.
Logan has begun posting an account of her trip on her blog and we hope you will follow her adventures this summer.
