You can be a part of the library's futureDONATE NOW
The library’s destruction was a deliberate attack on learning and free thought. UNESCO called it “one of the most devastating acts of destruction of library collections in human history.”
Life is now returning to Mosul – but the 50,000 students and university staff are struggling to complete their academic work without the books they need.
We are working closely with local non-profit Mosul Book Bridge to restock the library, sourcing brand new, up-to-date books specific to the University of Mosul’s needs. To date we have sent 9,417 brand new books – but that is just the start.
Transport and security challenges mean that the cost of these shipments is very high, so we need your help to send more books to Mosul. Please help us raise £100,000 so that we can send 50,000 brand new books.
Every £2 you give will send another book. Please donate now.
