Sasha's Library Project

03/03/2014 to 05/30/2014
Waterloo/ Geneva NY

Hello there, my name is Sasha and I am seventeen years old. I am really excited to do this. Reading is something that I enjoy doing and I want everybody to be able to have the opportunity to read if they want to.

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

I'm am avid reader and reading is something that is dear to me. I want to expose those who don't have access to reading materials to those. Reading to me is something that not only is educational but also so much fun. It plants ideas in heads and makes it possible for people to achieve their dreams.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

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

You can mail them to me or drop them off at one of the places I'll be announcing later.

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