Harambee! 2022

Update from Kenya

African Library Project's 5th Container made it to Kenya in September and the container was promptly received by our partner, Rongo University. They unpacked over 1,000 boxes containing 56 new libraries for schools and communities throughout the country. Rongo University conducted teacher-librarian training on October 6, and on the following day the schools picked up their libraries.

Last Book Drives of the Year

Our goal for 2022 is to get back to our 2019 (pre-COVID-19) numbers by creating 300 new libraries! This goal is two more containers and countries than we've done in the last two years. But we can't do it without the help of Book Drive Organizers! Click here to our website to see the mailing dates and learn more.

We have several openings still for our last book drives of the year. If you have books, please sign-up today. Or if you know someone that has books or is looking to complete a service project before the holidays, please share with them this newsletter or our website.

Whether you're a Book Drive Organizer with an active book drive, a previous Book Drive Organizer, an African partner, an ALP Library recipient, donor, volunteer, or simply a book lover.
