Oregon libraries send 1,000 boxes of books to libraries in China

"Libraries in Oregon's sister province of Fujian, China, will be receiving 1,000 boxes of surplus library books, a gift from Oregon libraries, organizations and individuals. Since the first of the year the State Library has worked with the International Relations Round Table of the Oregon Library Association to collect surplus books that have been discarded from Oregon library collections. On October 15th, beginning at noon, 15 members of the Oregon National Guard will assist with the project by taking the books from the basement of the State Library and loading them into a 40 foot ocean-going container that will be shipped to Xiamen in Fujian province in the next few weeks" - Portlander
