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 ...

We are Ethan, Avery, Addison, and Finley Inman. We are kids that go to school and live in Tracy, CA. We LOVE books and reading.

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

We love books and want to share them with everyone!

About our African Partners...

We are creating a library for a K-8th grade school in Ghana. Our school is called Muv Ahead learning center.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

Age appropriate books K-8th grade reading level in English. New or gently used. Resource books, learning books, flash cards, teacher aid books are all welcome too. Please no books about American holidays, history, or Religion.

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

Contact us for pickup in the Bay Area or Central Valley or for our mailing address to ship book rate. You can also send us money or donate gift cards so we can purchase books.

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

We are trying to drive the books to the warehouse ourselves over our spring break! As far as the additional money we will need for shipping, our parents have offered to cover the cost of that.

Here are some ways that you can help...

Donate books, money or gift cards. Help us collect and pick up books.

Progress Report

Our Goal 1000 books $250 fundraising
Results so far
(updated: 02/04/16)
850 books $0 fundraising

We got started on Christmas Day, and mom supplied us with 250 brand new books! From there we have scoured thrift stores, library books sales, and asked family for help. We are getting so close to our goal! In the next few days we are going to start cataloging all of our books. Mom has begun to separate them by age and interest.


Thanks Mom for getting us going.
