Has the ALA organized any such efforts for the Iraq War?

Not to my knowledge. There are, however, many groups sending books to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, I don't think anyone is promoting or building libraries for soldiers. It's a shame. Imagine what independent libraries would mean in a place like Iraq right now. An independent forum for dialog, for education, for community action. If we truly want to promote democracy and freedom, we should have brought books.
