Aloha to Africa: Creating an African Library
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.
Tips for Other Book Drive Organizers
Call preschools and schools and see if they will do a book drive for you. Talk to librarians at schools and collect their unwanted books. Also visit thrift shops for cheap books. We bought over 100 books for $.25 each and traded the American holiday books we collected for appropriate African books.
