So, for a more lighthearted post, here are some pictures of some more inscriptions. Although I still struggle with some of the issues related to donated books, I also find these inscriptions to be interesting pieces of history. I wonder about the people who wrote them. Who are they? Where are they? How did the books get from there to here? Etc. And it is a good reminder that there is history behind some of these books...history that involves other people and places. Little did these people know that their books would some day end up in a library in Africa, building a collection...building a community of learners.
*What do you think? Should we return some of them? ;-)
