Books for the University of Mosul Library

Collecting donations to cover shipping costs to help with the restocking of the destroyed university library in Mosul, Iraq

One book at a time...

The library at the University of Mosul, among the finest in the Middle East, once had a million books, historic maps, and old manuscripts. During the occupation of Mosul, which began in June 2014, Islamic State members burned the city’s central university library. Once a treasure trove of Unesco-registered rare books, the central library of the University of Mosul is now full of ash. The university is preparing to rebuild. Will you help?

We want to be a part of creating a credible resource center at one of the Middle East’s most important universities. 

Please consider making a financial donation here to help with shipping costs and and purchase of new textbooks. Please contact with any questions.
