i've never been to iceland

i don't know much about iceland. bjork is my only cultural reference to this mysterious place. and now, for the first time in my life, i have corresponded with a person from iceland--a librarian. here is what the Kopavogur library is doing for The September Project:
First of all we will promote the project by describing it, its origin and purpose, on our web-site as well as on posters inside and outside our library.

Secondly, books and other media on the subjects of democracy, freedom of speech, protests and human rights will be on show, as well as a booklet on the Constitution of the Republic of Iceland.

A brochure with a reading list and references to information about the project and its subjects will be produced and made available for the public.

In the Korinn, the multi-purpose room, films will be screened every day of the week between the 9th and the 16th of September at different times of the day.

There will also be a slide-show with photos of protests and demonstrations from various times in history and from various parts of the world.

With greetings from Iceland

this is so exciting. i would love to hear what people in iceland have to say. also, though i can't read the language, i loved looking at the website and seeing the "no terrorism" collage and the pictures of the Kopavogur library that kind of looks like aurora borelais.

i know. i felt the same way when i first opened the web site. there's a few words i could decipher, but for the most part, i was simply mesmorized by the beauty of a language i cannot read.
