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 ...

It is our Church School mission to fund a library in Botswana before Christmas.
If you have like-new books for reading ages preschool - 4th grade, please consider donating to our cause. Thank you!

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

There is a book for every special friend in the world. An adventure, a mystery, a comedy. Wish it, and it will come true within the pages of a book. We hope to share the love of books with our friends in other countries, especially at Christmas.
