Books For Africa

We here at The Library Club understand school can be tough. However, imagine how much tougher it would be without the books that we take for granted.

Books For Africa is a charity that takes books, sends them to Africa, and gets them into the hands that need them the most. http://booksforafrica.org/

We have many donated books, but we need money for postage to send them from Stony Brook University to the Books For Africa’s warehouse in Minneapolis Minnesota where they are packed into large cargo containers and then can be shipped to Africa.

Incentive

If you donate funds for postage you will get a button or a banner on our Books For Africa page with your company’s name and a link to your site as well as any contact information you provide. You can as an alternative provide your own button/banner if you have one.

  1. Hi, Victor………..
    In the last job I had at HSC Library, I was in charge of collecting and packing the books: some to European countries, some to Third World Countries. BTW, if you send by “Direct Sack”, as the P.O. calls it, your postage is significantly cheaper (I’m not sure if that also applies to Domestic items. You might want to check.).
    I would love to contribute to your fund. Will you accept a $20 CASH donation?
    Thanks,
    Bev

  2. Dear Beverly,

    We are accepting cash donation in the Main Stacks of the SBU Melville Library. Just ask for Victor or Kristen.

    Thanks for asking!
