African Library Project
What is the African Library Project? 
Please join the MS Community Service class and 4th grader Kareena A. in supporting the African Library Project! Our goal is to collect 1,000 gently used books from preschool level through 8th grade by June 1, 2019 to donate to libraries in Africa (specifically Kenya), where there are very few libraries available for their students. We hope to collect 1000 books from our wonderful community and truly make an impact abroad. Our goal of this project is to help provide a place where children can go to learn and love to read. 

Given the range of reading levels that we are likely to get through individual donations we will be focused on opening what is called a Primary Community library. This library designation invites books that range from preschool through 8th grade, along with some additional books that we could include that have to do with agriculture, geography, climate, regional knowledge, etc. (if we do not obtain many of the latter category, that is okay). For more information on steps involved in our book drive and lists of books that can (and can not) be included, please consult the ALP.

How you can help!

If you have any books you would be willing to donate please drop them in  bags or boxes outside our school library.
Thank you for your help in making a difference outside of our immediate world.

The deadline for all book collection is Friday, May 31, 2019

Make A Donation?
If you are interested in making a donation to go towards the $500 dollars for shipping for every 1000 books please PayPal us at  or you can give it to us directly when we come get the books. In all honesty the books are much more impactful and important than any financial contribution.

Last Year's Success!
Last year, because of all of your efforts and with the help of Keys school as well we were able to raise $1,500 dollars and more importantly collect 3000 books and open 3 libraries in Malawi!
