Berkeley Books for Botswana!
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.
Tips for Other Book Drive Organizers
I knocked on doors in my neighborhood and told our neighbors what I was trying to do, leaving a flyer if they weren't home. I gave a presentation to my classroom, and gave flyers to all the school teachers too. My Mom helped spread the word by emailing all the parents she's met since I started there in preschool. She also sent notices to freecycle.org, Berkeley Parents Network, and a neighborhood mailing list.
