African Library Project

Village View Brownie Troop 5226

12/12/2018 to 02/26/2019
Huntington Beach CA

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.

This book drive is organized by ...

A spunky group of second grade Brownie Scouts who live in Huntington Beach, California.

We want to start a library in Africa because...

We are happy to be able to share books that have been gifted to us and we have loved to read in the past.

About our African Partners...
