THE LIBRARY PROJECT
Pictures and Information
FAI Field Office in Alamos,
The river and houses near FAI Field Office. There has been a drought for almost 3 years - no water runs in this river. Taxi for a couple of days!
The library is housed on the school grounds at the end of the road.
Robin Flinchum (Tomas Tomas translator) heroically cataloged 937 books in Spanish, kept a daily log, and acted as Tom Sawyer's personal translator.
Many of the children helped in the assembly of tables, florescent lights, painting, artwork, hauling of materials, sorting of books, and cleanup. It gave them a since of pride and ownership in the library.
George Shepard, the muralist from Oregon begins the mural with a sunburst. For the most part George outlined the drawings on the inside walls of the library, they were then painted in by children. Children watch through the front door of the library as George created designs for the mural.
supervision of Professor Zoilo, George Shepard had approximately 50
children dip their hands in different colored paints and place their
hand prints on the west wall - signifying their signature and ownership
The library is now ready for opening day!
Professor Juan Zoilo Lopez - Director of the school, Mrs. Zoilo, and Robin Flinchum - Tomas Tomas Translator, smile - the library is ready to open.
