The African Library Project – Next Week

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 9.22.34 PMWe have been so fortunate at Sippican School. I always get excited when I find an opportunity for us to share our resources with those around us. Next week we will have a chance to do just that! Mrs. Arone from the Elizabeth Taber Library and I started working on a project to build a school library for a small town in the country of Malawi. Malawi is in the southern part of Africa. We’ve learned through research on The African Library Project website that most people in Malawi do not have access to electricity and their classrooms are without books.  We are hoping to make a difference for the children of the Kaphira primary school.

How Can I Help?

Between April 30 and May 4 we will be collecting gently used books along with loose change donations to cover the cost of shipping the library (around $500).  You may bring used books or donations to our school library or to the Elizabeth Taber Library at any point during the week.  We will prepare the books for shipment the following week!

Thanks in advance for your support!  Check out more details on the flyer below or contact Mrs. Barrett in the school library with questions.
