African Library Project

Maryland to Malawi

02/02/2015 to 03/27/2015
Edgewater MD

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 ...

Maryland to Malawi is made up of kids from three families from Edgewater, Maryland. We are: Caroline (9), Jameson (8), Lia (10), Lochlan (3), Mia (7), Sari (7), Seton (9), and Tierney (6).

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

It is our responsibility to look out for other kids in the world. Can you imagine what it would be like to grow up with no books? We want to do our part to promote literacy for other kids our age.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

We need gently used paperback books for readers ages Preschool- Grade 8.

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