African Library Project

Midwest Moms on a Mission

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!)

This book drive is organized by ...

Midwest Moms on a Mission --- Changing more than just diapers!

We are a group of moms in the NWI/Chicagoland area committed to improving our communities one good deed at a time. We believe in leading by example, and having fun doing it! We are living in uncertain times, but one thing that IS certain is the caring and kindness that DOES exist in the hearts and actions of citizens.
