Can anyone spare a laptop or two for Baghdad PL?

Yahoo News reports on Rebuilding of Baghdad library speaks volumes on tenacity:

Today, two librarians and a gardener watch over the library. Hussein says she's happy to receive the few visitors she gets each day. One day, she might get a computer to keep a record of her books.

For now, just having books is enough.

Do any Newzters think we can send this true librarian hero a laptop loaded with ResourceMate or some other simple OPAC? I'd be happy to contribute $$ if someone could figure out the shipping logistics.
