Dear Friends,

I am delighted to send greetings to everyone gathered for the official dedication of the American University of Afghanistan's Bernice Nachman Marlowe Library. Congratulations on celebrating this great achievement!

Today you honor Afghanistan's commitment to education by opening a vital center for learning. Only two years after the American University of Afghanistan was established, its students have access to the excellent resources and vast knowledge that libraries offer. Young Afghans, especially women, can come here to study many different subjects and read about the courageous democratic leaders of their country. They may even be inspired to follow in their footsteps.

I commend the American University of Afghanistan and all those who work to improve education in Afghanistan. Your efforts help prepare the future leaders of this nation for success in school and out.

President Bush joins me in sending our best wishes for many book-filled years.
