African Library Project

Troop 02946 Swaziland Book Drive

10/01/2016 to 03/15/2017
Levittown PA

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 ...

We are a Girl Scout Junior Troop with 9 members of 4th and 5th grade students from several schools in the Lower Bucks County area. We are collecting lots of books to make a Primary library in Swaziland. Our library include books with a reading level from 2nd through 6th grade. We are also accepting monetary donations to cover our $500.00 shipping costs. Our troop needs your assistance! Thank you in advance and have a nice day!!
