After more than a year in limbo, 22,000 books will be shipped Tuesday from Atlanta to rural Kenya to establish libraries in villages where none exist.

Atlanta nonprofit inABLE, formerly known as Our Reading Spaces, first arranged to send the books, a quarter of which are in Braille, last June on a planned Delta Air Lines flight to Nairobi, the East African nation’s capital.

The day before takeoff, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration denied Delta approval for the new route, citing insufficient security around the Nairobi airport. That left the books stranded at the Atlanta warehouse of Books for Africa, a Minnesota-based charity.
