FAVL Libraries

Below is a listing of libraries we currently assist. These are libraries supported by generous donors. Some of the libraries have dedicated endowments managed by FAVL. All libraries belong to the rural communities, and are under the authority of the locally-elected mayor and rural council, or other local entity. Libraries in our network receive regular visits from FAVL staff or affiliated representatives. Our aspiration for long-term financial commitment and support to libraries depends on donor support.
