HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Too many African children grow up without books, while U.S. bookshelves and landfills overflow with books no longer read.

DESCRIPTION

Help us build a school library by collecting and donating 1000 books! Our goal is to collect 600 books for Preschool- 4th grade and 400 books for 5th-8th grade students.  


ITEMS NEEDED

For Students: They especially need science, math, human anatomy, history, classics, atlases and dictionaries.  

For Teachers:  They could use wall posters for math, science, English and  geography.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

PLEASE:  No workbooks, coloring or sticker books, books with religious content, or books with small print, complex or technical language.


NEXT STEPS

Ask your friends, neighbors to clean out your bookshelves at home to donate to create a new school library.  See VIEW INSTRUCTIONS below to get started.
