“Books from Ben”

Books from Ben

“Books from Ben”, is a project dedicated to the memory of Benjamin Seth Pickett.  Ben was the kind of person who took time for kids, time for adventure, and time for those that most of us avoid.  He had a gift that made other’s lives better.  We hope to perpetuate this spirit with our “Books for Ben” project.  This project currently supports small libraries in indigenous communities throughout the Bocas del Toro Islands, in coordination with the “One Library at a Time” organization.

Library for the Community of Salt Creek

Each library kit is made up of roughly 100 books, a locking book case, & training provided by “One library at a Time”.

There are 2 ways to support these projects, you can purchase books from a “Wish List” which are then shipped to “One Library at a Time” & brought to Panama, or you can contribute financially to help cover the expenses of the bookcases, transport, etc.
