African Library Project

Smith Family Book Drive

09/01/2012 to 12/01/2012
Edmonds WA

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 love books!!!! What better way to enjoy the things we love most than by sharing them with others. We are Jason, Hannah, Britain (9) and Landon (5), and we love to read together.

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

Our boys love to read with us and want the children in Africa to enjoy the same time with their families! We are excited to create this library for the children in Africa and teach our boys the joy of serving others. We have been looking for ways to help others in our community and abroad as a family. When we heard of the African Library Project we were thrilled to find something that we could do as a family involving something that we love.
