Subject: Support a library

Dear All,
MelJol, the NGO I work with, has been given space in a municipal school building to start a library for the kids.
I was at Bookaroo last week and was talking to the publisher of Tulika books; she agreed to give me a 45 per cent discount on the book prices for the library.
The total cost of the books is about Rs 19,000. I'd like multiple copies because books get a little worn out when children use them. So I'm looking for about a lakh so I can buy five copies of each book.
Would you care to help?
Would you care to support a publisher who is trying to develop good strong Indian content and at the same time bring the magic of those stories to underprivileged children?
If you do, make a cheque to MELJOL with your name and address and with a note
saying: For the library at Gildlerlane Municipal School. You will of course get the tax benefits as well.
The address is
Room No 47, 2nd Floor, Gilder Lane Municipal School, Off Belassis Bridge, Mumbai Central Mumbai : 400 008

Tel no :

+91 022 2308 1050/2300 6428
Thank you.

Meanwhile, I am buying one set myself.
