Our Team

Our staff consists of over 75 people around the world — in France, Burundi, Jordan, the United States and Colombia, to name a few of the places where we operate! These team members are project and office managers, librarians, trainers, communications officers, logistics experts, entrepreneurs, DIYers, and dreamers. They are the beating heart of Libraries Without Borders.
