Links to Videos about the Cange Community Library, Haiti:

Haitian and American voices and faces give visibility to our efforts with the Cange Community Library Project, as we work to develop the only public library in the Central Plateau.

Having successfully grown in the last 3 years, the Cange Library is seeking funds to expand and to build a new library to accommodate rapid patron growth. Each video is less than five minutes in length.
