A recent donation of books from the estate of Kenneth L. Javonovich has made a significant contribution to the IBA’s library. Mrs. Javonovich, of Chicago, Illinois,U.S.A., arranged for this bequest to be given into the care of Khenpo Ngawang Jorden when he was in Chicago, earlier this year. IBA libraryThanks to the financial support of an anonymous donor from Singapore who took care of the considerable costs of shipping, Khenpo Jorden was able to arrange for safe delivery of the books to the IBA. Student volunteers gave each of the hundreds of books the IBA stamp, and arranged them on shelves in each category. The IBA, in addition to its large selection of Tibetan “pechas” now has a wide selection of “codex” style books on General Buddhism, Philosophy, Buddhist Practice, Art and Iconography, Reference, Language Study, History, Biography, Theravada Tradition, Mahayana Tradition, Mantrayana, Tibetan Medicine, Culture, and others.
