ALP is working to send a container of books to Lesotho this fall to create 35 new libraries. We still need Book Drive Organizers, who can complete a book drive by September 1. Click here to find out what’s involved and how to sign up. As you will read below, two ALP volunteers recently visited Lesotho and saw how libraries are working in the community and what more is needed.
ALP’s Lesotho Liaison, Amy Jo Carson, and I recently traveled to Lesotho. Our first stop was Malealea, a beautiful village in the Mafeteng District of Lesotho. Its enchanting mountainous views are delightful to tourists and natives alike. Unfortunately, like the majority of rural inhabitants, the people of Malealea often do not have access to educational supplies or even an education.
