Meitar, where I now live, has a public library! Yay!
The library building was built in 2003 with the help of over a million shekels from Mif'al Hapais, Israel's national lottery.
"You win, the country wins" is the motto of the Pais.
Since 1951, using the money people pay for lotto tickets, Mif'al Hapais has given more than five billion dollars to funding of community projects all over Israel.
