Clyde M. Campbell Library

at Al-Mizzra Al-Sharqiyyeh

A Wonderful Place

The library in Al-Mizra’a Al-Sharqiyyeh is entirely supported by a generous donation from Mrs. Colleen Jersild. This support is in memory of her father, Clyde M. Campbell. Currently, it is our biggest and most well-equipped library. The community couldn’t wait until the grand opening. Children have been going in and out looking at and reading books standing up while workers are installing rugs and furniture. A Palestinian woman who grew up in America but now lives in that village said: “Since I moved back, I have been hoping for something as wonderful as a library.”
