About African Library Project:
Our grassroots approach mobilizes U.S. volunteers, young and old, to organize book drives and ship books to a partner library in Africa. Our method makes a concrete and personal difference for children and youth on both continents.
As your bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah project, or community service project, help start a library in Africa by organizing your own book drive. Schools, Scouts, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, college clubs, companies and many others have offered the gift of reading to an African community by recycling books from family bookshelves. Use our Book Drive Guidelines to collect, sort, pack and then mail your books to our warehouse, where they will be containerized for shipment to Africa. Your goal is to collect 1,000 appropriate books and approximately $500 for shipping and related costs.
