Rockin' Round Rock African Library Project

Round Rock TX

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 ...

Rockin' Round Rock African Library Project is a community of people interested in coming together to collect books to donate to a Community Primary School library in Malawi. We love books, and if you do to, please contact us!

About our African Partners...

We will be sending the books we collect to a partner library in Malawi. The library will provide books for the community and serve approximately 800 readers. Local teachers, community members interested in learning, education management leaders, and village heads are committed to setting up, organizing and supporting the library once the books are collected and shipped.
