ABOUT THE BOOKS FOR MOSUL CAMPAIGN

Once a major center of learning in the Middle East, the library at the University of Mosul was destroyed by ISIS when they occupied the city in June 2014. The militants methodically burned nearly all of the one million books, manuscripts, and historic maps saving only a few chemistry textbooks that they used to build crude explosives. One of the finest libraries in the Middle East was burned to the ground.

We are holding a book drive for Mosul to restore the library as a credible resource center at one of the Middle Eastís most important universities.
