MV Logos Hope: Inside Tour at the World's Largest Floating Book Fair

MV Logos Hope in Manila 2012
Life is a journey.
We're all going 
but where 
are we going?

The largest floating library in the world, the MV Logos Hope, arrived in Manila last February 17. Carrying more than 5,000 titles, the ship officially opened its doors to Manila, providing high-quality books at a fraction of the cost. The Logos Hope community of 400 unpaid volunteers from over 45 different countries lives and works together for one purpose - to bring knowledge, help and hope to the people of the world.

Good Books for All (GBA Ships e.V.), which runs the Logos Hope, is a non-profit organization based in Germany. Since 1970, the organization’s vessels have made over 1,400 port visits in over 160 countries and territories, and were enjoyed by over 42 million visitors, bringing knowledge, help and hope.

One good thing about this community is it gives the ship's visitors a chance to extend help,in big or little ways. I encourage everyone to donate at least Php50, that's a little money but this donation sure goes a long way. You'd also be happy to bring home a free pin with their signature logo designs which can be your little trinket of memorabilia of a wonderful floating library experience.
