African Library Project

Book Safari: Exploring the Depths of Imagination

01/01/2014 to 05/15/2014
Wright WY

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 ...

Courtney Fuller and Raegan Reynolds have embarked on a journey to change lives, book by book. We have partnered with the Wright FCCLA at Wright Junior Senior High School in Wright, Wyoming to ensure our goals are achievable. Coming from a small town in Wyoming, education is a key aspect to our community. We felt that distributing books to a small undereducated community would give other people the chance to broaden their learning capabilities.

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

We feel that everyone, no matter where they live, should have the opportunity to expand their education by reading. Reading has made an impact on our lives and we want to share that joy with the less fortunate.
