BBT Library Party in India
Dear Vijaya Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I am following the inspiring texts on your Book Distribution Conference and find them helpful. Thank you.
Now we have started the BBT Library Party again, this time by mail, since traveling in India is difficult. By Prabhupada's mercy, many libraries, schools, colleges, professors, and people who just happen to read the mailout letter are responding with requests for Srila Prabhuada's books. Today we got a letter from a Professor of the St. George College of Lucknow, Dept. of Dentristry, explaining that he first contacted Prabhupada's books at the college library. Seeing our letter, he ordered fifteen books for his college library. One secondary school in Delhi ordered every single book on the list, about 150 titles for their library! This is a dream come true!
I'm writing to share this with the Conference to request any members to please send me addresses of persons, institutions, schools, etc. in India who might be interested in sets of books for their libraries. We offer a 25% discount to institutions. This is approved by BBT, Mumbai since it is only for genuine libraries, not for individuals. Of course, if an individual can convince a library to take a set of books, that's great. One staff member of J.K. Cement Works in Rajasthan convinced his boss's wife to order a full set of Caitanya Caritamrita and about 20 other books for the factory's education centre because he so much wanted to read the books but couldn't afford them.
Looking forward your responses,
