Kigali Kollection Achieves Goal of 10,000 Books!
Multnomah University News,
Once again, the Kigali Kollection has reached its goal—this time, five months before the due date. On July 15th, Multnomah staff, Emi Koe and Mary Newman, both shared the pleasure of entering the 10,000th book to the Kigali book database. Between the two of them, they have entered a total of 6,000 books this summer.
The current count stands at 10,202 and the committee hopes to reach 12,000 books before MU students return in the Fall.
In addition to all the student, alumni, faculty, staff, and community donations at Multnomah, new donors are coming in all the time. Contributing to the collection were two very generous retired pastors. They donated their libraries, which totalled 1,350 books, to the Kigali Kollection.
Having a library with 10,000 books will allow Kigali Bible College to be an accredited institution (African accreditation bodies require an institution’s library to have 9,000-12,000 books in order for it to be accredited).
Although the goal has been met, the Kigali Committee will still continue to collect books until December 18. So don’t stop; keep the books flowing in!

Local Oregon foresters and craftsmen offer Woodturning Blanks for woodworking projects. Display your skills with a lathe by starting from pen blanks or bowl blanks and creating beautiful artwork. Your options expand even more when you consider the options with burl wood and wood slabs.
Finally, if you live in California, be sure to discuss your options at a Sacramento probate lawyer related to your estate and trust. Legal planning is critical, and having an attorney who comprehends probate administration and law will be invaluable!
