African Library Project

Geoffrey's Eagle Book Drive

03/25/2017 to 06/01/2017
Annapolis MD

The African Library Project brings gently used books to an African community that has lots of eager readers but very few books. Please help by collecting and delivering gently used books or by raising money to help pay for shipping to Africa. It only takes 1000 books and $500 to start a single library (and a little elbow grease!)

We need to raise funds for shipping the books...

I will be in contact with donors on how they can donate on a later date. Fundraising opportunities from restaurants will most likely be the fundraising method.

Here are some ways that you can help...

Please donate books! This is a library project. Also, I cannot run the project without cash donations. The African Library Project needs $500 dollars and I will need about an extra $100 to finish off the project. Thank you for your donations!
