Books are on their way
Year 15! It is a happening. Today they loaded the truck which will go from Round Rock, TX, to the port at Houston. In two months, the shipment of 13,000+ new or like-new hardback books will arrive in Uganda. What an incredible team we have, as well as amazing donors of books and funding. God bless you one and all. Special thanks to board member Jim Matthews for overseeing the shipping.
The Incredible Four
Ellen, Betty, Anna, and Paula worked all day as we start to wind up the 2019 shipment. They are the best!
Today we organized Eagles Nest High School! Thanks for your work Paula, Grace, Elisa, and Peter, our new librarian. Our 2018 projects included this new library and the restocking of 12 existing libraries with 13,000 books. An all volunteer organization, Libraries of Love has created libraries in 38 schools in Uganda and 7 schools in Kenya. 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 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.
Thanks to Coughlan
