100 Books


The Peace Corps used to give each volunteer a chest with 100 books when they were sent to their permanent post to help them fill the many empty hours. Things haven’t changes too much from those earlier times. Although there are now computers with DVD drives and games, portable CD players, and cell phones, nothing beats a book. Departing Peace Corps have been behind hundreds of books for their replacements. There is no better legacy.
