On March 2, books began their two-month trip to Uganda. This year, Libraries of Love will provide three new libraries and restock 15. A total of 222,704 hardback new or like new books have been shipped since 2005 for our 48 school libraries – all with Dewey spine labels and pockets and cards for borrowing.
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.
Over the years, Executive Director Trudy Marshall has kept a journal of happenings – good and sometimes not so good – during her stays in Uganda and Kenya. Now, those writings have been compiled into a book.

Fundraiser a big success
Many, many thanks to our friends / supporters who made our BBQ dinner / fundraiser a success. We appreciate you. Thanks to Brotherton’s Black Iron Barbecue for supplying the meat and to Pflugerville Community Church for providing a great place for our annual event. Additional thanks to all those who donated items for our auction.
2019 volunteers restocked 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.
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.
