Today, Magda de Bie, the Forum Library's front office librarian, presented a cheque for €700 to Pim Brascamp, Chairman Anne van den Ban Fund. This donation was possible because of all the people who took some ‘free’ books and donated to this special project.

This summer the Forum library will be refurbished to create more study spaces. To do this, the Library needed to create space. So, it decided to keep only one copy of every book in its collection and give the extra copies away. These free books were distributed around the ‘Globe’ in the Forum. A donation box was placed for voluntary contributions to collect money for the Anne van den Ban Fund. Thank you very much for your donations!

The Anne van den Ban Fund allows promising students from developing countries to follow a study at Wageningen University.
