Geoffrey's Eagle Book Drive

03/25/2017 to 06/01/2017
Annapolis MD

Please help us by collecting and delivering gently used books or by raising money to help pay for shipping to Africa.

Please donate books! This is a library project. Also, I cannot run the project without cash donations. The African Library Project needs $500 dollars and I will need about an extra $75 to finish off the project. Thank you for your donations!
