We are working with the African Library Project to provide books to eager readers in Africa who have very few books. Please help us by collecting and delivering gently used books or by raising money to help pay for shipping to Africa. It takes only 1000 books and $500 (plus a little elbow grease!) to start a single library and make a huge difference in children’s lives.

This book drive is organized by ...

We are 5th graders studying in the bay area of California. This is our first book drive. Last year, we helped another friend complete with her drive and reach her objective. The experience of participating in the book drive was so exciting that we decided to start our own drive. We hope to reach our goal this year with your help.

We want to start a library in Africa because...

We love reading books. It is the best way to learn and also have fun. We always have books very easily available, and we want kids in Africa to have the same opportunity. We think that each child should have a chance to read and improve their literature and imagination. This is very important to kids everywhere.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

We will collecting books that are engaging for preschool through fourth graders. Math and Science textbooks are more than welcome, along with fiction and nonfiction.
