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 a Junior Girl Scout troop from Modesto, CA. There are 16 4th and 5th grade girls in our troop and we are always interested in helping the community while making a difference. Our participation in the African Library Project is going to help us complete the Get Moving Take Action Project for one of our Junior Journeys.

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

We want to help other children get new books so they can read them and learn new things. We want all kids to have every opportunity possible.
