The Incredible Four
Ellen, Betty, Anna, and Paula worked all day as we start to wind up the 2019 shipment. They are the best!
Thanks to Whitney Dixon and Liz Titus who were first-time volunteers from Apple Computers. They helped us get close to finishing boxes for the 2019 shipment. We hope to see them again!
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
Pictured are samples of the great books donated by Coughlan Companies. We are thrilled with the donation of over 4,000 new, hardback books from this supportive publisher.
Thanks to Barnes & Noble
We thank the management at the Barnes & Noble store in Round Rock for choosing Libraries of Love as their seasonal charity this year. Also, thanks to all the volunteers who came on weekends to represent us and to all of you who donated books. We collected 883 books. There will be some smiles in Uganda!
