Hundreds of Lebanese joined the protest yesterday to condemn the torching of Al Sa’eh library in Tripoli, Lebanon’s second biggest library. Lebanese of all ages and religions came to help Father Sarrouj save whatever is left of the 80,000 books and clean up the library. The renovation process will take days and maybe weeks but everyone’s determined to bring back the library to its original state and make it look even better than before.
Lebanese Blogger Nath Halawani has taken part in the restoration process and is sharing awesome pictures that you can check [Here].
I have to say that despite the book slaughter that took place a couple of days ago, I am happy to see all Tripoli residents united and determined to bring back this library to life.
Here’s a nice report by MTV as well:
