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 5 Girl Scout troops from 1st grade to 5th grade. Every year we all do a service project to help our community. Last year we did a shoe drive for Share Your Soles, and this year we chose to collect books for a school in Botswana, Africa.

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

We all really enjoy reading. We feel that it is important to sometimes take a break and travel to different or imaginary places by simply reading a book. We think it is important to share this experiance withh other people around the world.

About our African Partners...

We are helping Our Lady of Carmel Primary School in Botswana open a library at their school. Please help us get 1,000 books to them!
