New FAVL website coming along….

Dear FAVL supporter,
We were using some ancient Internet technology and finally our service provider could no longer accommodate and the site stopped working when the service upgraded.  So we have switched service provider to WordPress, and are slowly building the site again.  Incidentally, if you are a web developer and could donate 5 hours of time to help build the WordPress site we would appreciate it.  Contact FAVL director Michael Kevane.  Meanwhile, we will continue to post news from the libraries as often as possible.

An amazing librarian: Zebret Moumouni from Bougounam has covered the community library with his own paintings
