Volunteers rescue thousands of books from Mosul library destroyed by IS
It was a reading festival. But this is Mosul, and until a few months ago it was crawling with Islamic State militants. They occupied the city's university library, where last week festival-goers celebrated a rich culture and donated books. The volunteer effort to save what was left of Mosul University library after it was destroyed by IS has renewed hope for the city after more than two years of occupation.
