African Library Project

Tony's African Library Project

1/13/2016 to 5/15/2016
Pearland TX

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 ...

Tony Liu in Pearland, TX. I am a high school freshman student and enjoy reading. I started an English club that benefits students who wish to improve their English skills in China. Recently, I learned that many countries in West Africa have experienced closings of their schools due to epidemics and diseases. I decided to be involved in African Library Project in an effort to help improve literacy in Africa.

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

Everyone in the world should be able to experience the gift of knowledge and to be able to enjoy the wonders of literature.
