African Library Project



You can help ALP create libraries and change lives by making a tax-deductible donation. It costs us:

  • $25 for 3 training manuals for new librarians learning how to set up and run a simple library
  • $100 for a set of 20 HIV/AIDS children’s readers for one rural library to replace myths with facts
  • $250 to ship one library of 1,000 books from New Orleans to Africa.
  • $1000 to ship 4 libraries of 1,000 books each from New Orleans to Africa.

Your donation, in these amounts or any you would like to contribute, will be used where it is most needed. The list above is intended to give you an idea of what some of our costs are and what a donation at a particular level can accomplish.

You can make an easy online credit card donation or you can mail us a check.
