The African Library Project

Boca Raton FL

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 ...

Hi, we are the Kahns, Jonathan (age: 12) and Jacqueline (age: 16)! We believe that the key to success derives from some form of education. This is why we have such a strong passion for helping others who want to learn how to read and write but do not have the proper tools to do so. When we found the African Library Project, we could not help it but get involved. With all of this, we decided to start a book drive!

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

We are striving to promote literacy in Ghana because literacy is the # 1 tool out of poverty. All kids deserve to have an education and with the tools they need, they can make a change in their community. With 1,000 books, we can build a primary school library for the kids of Ghana. Help us help them!

About our African Partners...

Hansua K Twi MA Primary School is our African Partner! The people in this community are mainly farmers and petty traders. Most pupils help their parents on the farm during the weekends and some after their classes to trade. We are excited to build them a library and give them the resources to a successful future!

Please contribute these kinds of books...

We are collecting books at a primary school level which consists of pre-school level books (Picture Books) all the way up to 4th grade level books (Textbooks, Dictionaries, etc.).

Here's how you can contribute your books...

Email our mom (Rosalba Kahn) at if you have any books you would like to donate and she will coordinate pick-up/drop-off arrangements. (It's for a good cause!). All donations are tax-deductible!

We need to raise funds for shipping the books...

In addition to collecting the books, another important part of this drive is to raise a MINIMUM of $500 to cover the cost of shipping our library to the African Library Project warehouse in New Orleans and then on to Ghana. See below for fund donation information.

Here are some ways that you can help...

Donating books, ask others to donate books or money and help us spread the word! Donate money for shipping the books to Ghana. Any shipping supplies you can donate and once we collect books we will need help organizing and packing! This will be a team effort..... Join our KAHN-struction Team!!!!
