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.

Tips for Other Book Drive Organizers

We only set up a book drop-off at our main building and after a few weeks we got so many books!! During our Book Fair we set out a box to collect money, and that worked too! We are hosting a bake sale to help raise more money.
