In partnership with the local Catholic Church, the library in Taybeh was launched in 2011. It's creation was  entirely supported by St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Evanston and it is one of our biggest libraries so far. It is the first library where we introduced, right from the beginning, a multimedia center: computers and internet, movie shows and CD collection.
