Welcome to

          Our Passion is Ethiopian Literary & Cultural Awareness!!

About Us

As the nation’s capital, Washington has been the center of the Ethiopian community for the last 40 years.

But it was in 2011 that a group of Ethiopian expatriates got together privately with friends and established the Ethiopian Literary & Cultural Awareness Association in Silver Spring, Maryland. Their goal was to add a personal face to Montgomery County Public Library, Silver Spring branch a collection of Amharic book in the circulation of the public library system.
