About Us

The African Library Project changes lives book by book by starting libraries in rural Africa. 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 on both continents.

Help start a library in Africa by organizing your own book drive. Schools, Scouts, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, churches, college clubs, companies and many others have offered the gift of reading to an African community by recycling books from family bookshelves.
