My name is Rita and I’m proudly Kaia’s mom.
I have opened @lebanon_rent_a_book page on Instagram out of a very personal experience where I was deeply sad as I was not able to buy even 1 book for Kaia due to the unfortunate economical situation which started in 2020 in Lebanon.
Asking around, I had the same answers from moms!
Believing that we are all in this together and that our kids should never ever be affected with the cruelty we were facing, I started renting books with very affordable prices to help parents and kids have access to many books with minimal prices.
Starting from my little library and with the many generous donations, I received from kindhearted parents who were eager to help others and with the amount I got back from the renting fees, I was able to expand the library to include more than thousand book so far!!!
We all know that reading books to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world.
It also helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word and most of all, it helps Lebanon to have, hopefully, a well-educated, aware, and kind generation.
This page is not a business page with a profit intended purpose, it is an initiative to help as we are all in this together.
From me and Kaia, to you and to your angels, all the love.
