I hadn’t heard this story of how Mr. Alhadi managed to save 28,000 of 30,000 manuscripts during an invasion of Mali. I’m really glad that ALA decided to honor his efforts at their 2013 annual conference. Click the title of this post to read the full resolution. I’m positive there’s a graphic novel or movie in this somewhere.
