African Library Project

Buchser Middle School's African Library Project has started and we have to have the books packaged and Shipped by WHEN?

10/27/2014 to 12/10/2014
Santa Clara 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.

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

All kids deserve an education. And a big part of education is BOOKS.

About our African Partners...

Tachibona Primary School in Botswana, Africa will be receiving our books. At this school there are 21 teachers and 582 students! The population in Botswana is 2.1 million people. In Botswana all girls and boys have an equal access to education

Please contribute these kinds of books...

We are collecting books for a primary school library which are books at the U.S preschool to 4th grade reading level. You can try to donate lots of picture books and favorites from when you were growing up! The books need to be new or gently used.

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

You can bring you books to boxes in your English teachers classroom or the Library anytime before December 10, 2014 Please bring as many new or gently used books as you can!

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

The leadership class will write letters to local businesses and companies asking them to donate money and/or books to help us. If you would like to help us ship the books you can bring money to Mrs.Lindsey in E2.

Here are some ways that you can help...

1. Donate Books
