It was quite crowded in the centre of Stavanger today. Nice weather and lots of activities.

Outside The Culture House, the library had a sale of old books and books they no longer wanted to keep. All the money from the sale goes to a fund to educate two Malawian student librarians, so they can pass their knowledge on to other people in their country where there are only 20 librarians to serve a population of 13 million.

Looks like a lot of fun. Our libraries do that, too, and you can often books that suit your interests at a good price.

Nice people shot!
