African Library Project


Step 7 - Getting your books to Africa

We handle this part!


  • Our shipper will receive your boxes of books and store them securely in a U.S. warehouse.
  • We schedule container shipments to Africa on a regular basis, and once you register your book drive with us, we will reserve a spot for your books in a specific container.
  • When we are ready to ship, the shipper will palletize, shrink wrap and load your boxes into a container bound for Africa. Finally, your books will be transported by rail or truck from the African port to your library destination.
  • At last, your books will be unpacked, organized into a library, and made available to people who are eager to read!
  • Congratulations!
