Library of Laos Project, not for profit organization, was founded by the Worley and Engelken family in Kansas City in associate with F.J.Chuck Theusch- a veteran of Viet Nam War. The LOLP accepts donations from the public to build libraries. These donations include shelves, furniture, a basic stock of books, computers and internet in the basic project. As a non profit organization, donations are necessary because the cost of each children's library is $40,000. The local People's Committees and officials donate the land and site preparation to include unexploded mines and bomb clearance where necessary. From the day of dedication, the opening of the library, the security, operation, and maintenance are paid for by the Laotian people.

The standard library design is key to our concept. It features a distinctive roof line, handicapped access ramps, outdoor balcony with an open study, meeting and assembly area on the first floor. Books and computers are on the second floor to avoid potential flooding in the monsoon season.

Together with the Laotian people and you, we hope to build libraries throughout Laos, creating a vibrant system of book exchanges, computer hardware and software, educational programs- on land mine and unexplorded bomb safety awareness- medical and legal education, career days in medicine, and countless other fields. We also maintain and enhance the holdings and services of each library, and provide operational support for the librarians, local schools, community and goverment officials engaged with us in this international endeavor. This is an ambitious project. To make this charitable fund happen we rely on our steadfast "It's a Wonderful Life" appreciation of people- we need everybody in every capacity, every life touches many other lives! We are Americans and Vietnamese working together as a family team to realize the greatest potential of this charitable fund for us all.
