Volunteers restock 10 libraries
And create 3 new libraries
Year 15 is in the books – so to speak. Volunteers have completed their work, and 10 libraries in Uganda have been completely restocked, along with 3 new libraries.
The shipment of 13,000+ new or like-new hardback books made the two-month trip from Texas.
We are excited and proud to say that more than 100,000 students have had access to books in our libraries since the first Library of Love was created at Namirembe Primary School in Kampala in 2005.
We are so thankful for all the supporters who donated books and funding, and special thanks to volunteers who gave their time to make this happen again this year. God bless you one and all. Special thanks to board member Jim Matthews for overseeing the shipping.

The Incredible Four

We appreciate Mackin
We are thankful for Mackin Educational Resources. They have supported Libraries of Love with hundreds of books each year. They provide a wonderful variety of hardback easy, fiction, and non-fiction books.
