Books for the University of Mosul Library
Project for IRAQI AND AMERICAN RECONCILIATION PROJECT

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 info@reconciliationproject.org with any questions.
