I’ll be leaving for Nicaragua in 18 days–the 25th. Here a some things that have changed: I’m nixing the book laminate and instead going for the significantly cheaper rolls of clear packing tape. This can be used to repair and reinforce pages as well as bindings, and it can be used for a myriad of other things.
Though Marcia’s been looking for cabinets, we really haven’t been able to find what we were looking for in Nicaragua. At this point we are strongly considering giving Maria money to build/purchase something she considers suitable. Another option is large Rubbermaid bins like so:

Regarding the encyclopedia set we’ve run into a problem not knowing the age group. We have conflicting ranges of 3-6 and 4-10. There are some good sets, but they might not be of use to certain age groups. I’ll keep working on this, and we probably won’t get a set until after this trip. I’ll know a lot more of what the school’s like now and what it may be like later once I return. Also, the book evaluations haven’t gone as planned. I lost touch with the volunteers, and have decided to sort the books into “uncertain” and “okay” piles. Pretty much all the kids books should be fine, but the longer ones or those theological in nature I’ll mark in some way so Maria can get someone to go through them.
