Reach Out Pacific (REPAC) to send 15,000 books to Palau. The books were donated from the “Friends of the Library of Hawaii” book sale. 15,000 books were not sold so they were donated to REPAC.
Cierra Nakamura of REPAC weighs in on the decision, “For us in Hawaii, we have so many things and we have an abundance of things. And places in Micronesia, like Palau, they don’t have that luxury… If we send it to places in Micronesia, it will help them a lot.”
The books will be packed into over 700 boxes and shipped to Palau. It will take approximately one month to reach its destination.
