African Library Project

Sundance Elementary PTA's African Library Project

01/30/2015 to 04/17/2015
San Diego CA

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 ...

Sundance Elementary School, Poway Unified School District

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

We are excited to have our children learn about other communities and help promote reading. It also gives the children an opportunity to recycle their books.
