Pass it on... Books

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 ...

Hi! My name is Jacquelyn Dulaigh and I am a fifteen year old in the state of Washington. I love to help people, so this fits right in with the way I do things. Right now I am trying to get a team together to do fundraisers. I already have several books that a kind lady from across the street gave to me. She was the first book donor! I started this specific book drive on March 17, 2012. My school said that they didn\'t support my idea, but my church is glad to help and so is my brothers boy scout troop. Team members (as of March 21,2012) : Michelle Magnotti, Rachael LaMarche, Meggan Vande, Julz Tolentino, and Kelsey Hart. Thank you to those of you who signed up.

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

Starting an African library means the world to me and my team. I really love helping people and so when I heard about this program, I was all over it. I really want to help the kids in Africa, and I just know they want to be loved.
