> Family > Room to Read Library in Laos in honor of Enid Miller Slivka
In honor of Enid Miller Slivka's 80th birthday, a Room to Read library was created at the Kenthao Complete Secondary School in the Phouan village, Kenthao district, Xayabouly province of Laos.

Construction began on 3/29/2007 and the building was officially opened on 9/13/2007.

The Completion Report [PDF, 217Kb] includes more details about the school, the community, and the project, along with a few photographs.

The text on the dedication plaque reads in part:

This library was established cooperatively by the local community and Room to Read.
It is dedicated to Enid Miller Slivka, who worked as a librarian in public, private, and
military libraries in Colorado, Nebraska, Washington, and Austria from 1944 to 1997.
