African Library Project

Operation: Education

11/14/2012 to 04/15/2013
Broadway VA

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 ...

We are the Broadway High School Book Club. We are motivated by our desire to share our love for reading around the world.

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

We want to start a library . . .
"because we want people to learn."
"to give others the chance to enjoy a good book."
"because what divides poor and rich is a lack of education."

About our African Partners...

We are accepting books to begin a secondary community library in Ghana.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

We will accept books written in English at a 4th through 8th grade reading level. We'll also accept book donations outside of that reading level range for our used book sale (to raise money to ship the books to Ghana).

Here's how you can contribute your books...

We are currently accepting books at Broadway High School, 269 Gobbler Drive, Broadway, VA 22815. We need to ship the books on April 15, 2013, so we hope to have them all here by the end of February (to give us time for sorting and packing!).

We need to raise funds for shipping the books...

We will be accepting donations throughout our book drive; these funds will help us to ship the books to Ghana. You can mail checks--made out to Broadway High School--to Jennifer Moyers, Broadway High School, 269 Gobbler Drive, Broadway, VA 22815.

Here are some ways that you can help...

*Donate books

*Set up a collection site
