Donate Books with African Themes


Thanks to board member Jim Matthews and his wife, Ellen, who volunteers weekly, for this wonderful idea. They’ve put together a list of books with African themes, and now they are available directly from Amazon. Just click here and make your selection. The books will be shipped to Libraries of Love where we’ll add spine labels and pockets and cards for checkout.

It has been our hope for some time to provide more books with African settings so that the children who read them in Uganda – and Kenya – can better identify with the stories. Now, you can be the one to provide the books.

Perhaps if your child has a birthday party, each student could donate a book, or give a book as a Christmas present. What a great way to teach philanthropy!

Thank you, as always, for your support.

Facebook post from Trudy (June 26, 2015):
Our incredible team boarded the airplane an hour ago to return to the States. They restocked 11 libraries 
(which is more difficult than doing new ones), and created 3 new libraries. They spent time with many young people, sang and visited in classes, took boda rides through the bush, and made many new friends. I will miss them!

More than Books
Libraries of Love Team 2015 rode motorbikes through the countryside sharing love with kids and adults. The team handed out suckers and toothbrushes. Those in the bush will always remember the time when the mzungus arrived on 8 bodas.

A lifelong partnership
We appreciate Babirye Sophie. She has been a Libraries of Love librarian for 6 years. Over 800 students come to borrow books each week at Ugandan Martyrs Primary. The library has had many visitors, such as those from the Red Cross and Operation Uganda. Sophie said she especially loves the 2-day librarian meeting sponsored by Libraries of Love where she gets to interact with other librarians. She also loves reading novels. Cheers for Sophie!

Thankful for past support and looking to the future
