Girl Scout Troop #3468 San Diego

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.

We are a Junior Girl Scout Troop working on our bronze award. Please help us raise 1,000 books for students in grades PK-8 at a school in Lesotho, Africa.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

This is considered a community library so books should be appropriate for student in preschool through 8th grade.

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

Books can be dropped off at various schools including Bird Rock Elementary, Kate Sessions Elementary, Pacific Beach Elementary, Longfellow Spanish Immersion School, and Mt. Everest Academy. Or, you can simply give them to the Troop 3468 member that you know.

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

Thank you to everyone that purchased cookies from us as we are going to use that money to ship the books to Africa.
