A TRIBUTE TO MY DAD, ELDON D. SNYDER
By Sharon Allen
This is a story about books, Africa, libraries, and my dad. Just a few weeks ago my dad turned 94 years old. While his health has recently started to fail, he continues to find ways of supporting the African Library Project. As a retired educator, I seem to have fallen into an almost full-time volunteer job (for at least the next few years) collecting books, making libraries, fundraising for libraries, and speaking to schools, churches, and other organizations to encourage and support them in establishing libraries for Africa. But having had a hand in many, many libraries in the past 2 ½ years, I could not be doing this all alone!
