This program will discuss the many aspects of the project that involved many librarians working across the country mainly through email to determine how best to serve the children who were being detained in inhumane facilities. The program will discuss the challenges and strategies involved in organizing the book and library community to donate books and funds in order to give these children the comfort of a book and the use of their imagination to continue their learning in the midst of great odds.
