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 freshmen in high school looking to help out those in need in Africa!! Donating books for a library is great way to do so!!

We have the ability and resources to read, and we wish that for others too! Starting this project gives us a great opportunity to personally help others become literate. This will also expand knowledge to different parts of the world and invoke people of any race, sex, or religion to do something in the world to make it better.
