Frequently Asked Questions
Africans speak so many languages. Why send books in English?
What age group are your libraries targeting?
Why do you only send children’s books?
How do you know the books are being well used?
Likewise, you can visit our partner page to learn about the work of our partners in each country. They receive and verify the applications and provide training of teacher librarians to ensure books and other resources are being used as efficiently and professionally as possible.
I know a place in Africa that needs your help. Can you help them start a library?
That’s because we ship 30-60 libraries at a time in containers. If you represent an organization in Africa that is actively working to support the development of many libraries annually, please do contact us to explore the possibility of partnership.
I would like to volunteer to work in Africa with your libraries. Is this possible?
What kinds of schools volunteer to collect and send books? Can younger children help?
Our school would like to collect books, but we don’t have an easy way to raise money to ship the books. Can we still participate?
I don’t have books to donate, but I would like to support this project. Can I make a donation?
Of course! We appreciate any contribution you can make. To make a donation online, click “Donate to Us” on our main page or send a check to 19 Mantua Rd. Mt. Royal, NJ 08061.
