Posted: 01 Mar 1989

Pontifical Mission for Palestine opened a library in Amman, Jordan, for the local community. It offers books and periodicals in Arabic as well as Western languages. While the facility provides services for people regardless of their faith, it particularly will promote Christian cultural, social, intellectual, and spiritual development.

The project was developed in collaboration with members of the Teresian Association who had previously established libraries in Jerusalem (1960), Bethlehem (1970), and Nazareth (1972) for the Pontifical Mission.
