Textbooks find second home in Uganda

Amy Guckeen reported in "our" Milwaukee Catholic Herald, March 27, 2008. Anyone who's ever worked a used book sale knows used textbooks can be a problem. Fr. John Mary Ssozi, "a student at UW-Milwaukee and in residence at St. Robert Parish, Shorewood," heard of a need for textbooks for a new university library at Masaka in his native Uganda. So he started collecting them.
Donated textbooks have to be less than 10 years old, and must be college-level in a math and science field, Claire Anderson, pastoral associate at St. Robert said.

Got a box of textbooks? If they've gotten musty or are falling apart, just throw them away yourself. If they're in good shape, check if a used book sale might be interested. Be ready with a description of age and subjects and give them a call.
