We’re excited to announce that Earl Warren Middle School Teen Korps and the Solana Beach Library are joining forces again this year to start another library in Africa through the African Library Project ( http://www.africanlibraryproject.org/)!
Last year, EWMS Teen Korps collected and sent 1000 books to start Twenedrase Community Library in Obo-Kwahu area, Ghana. Our collection drive was so successful that we have enough books to start another drive, and this year our library is in Swaziland, a small country in southern Africa.
But, we need your help to collect several hundred more books to reach our goal of 1000.
What’s needed: Gently used paperback books for secondary school grades 4 through 8. You may also donate educational supplies, such as pencils, pens, paper, workbooks, etc.
Where to drop them off: At the Solana Beach library, and please tell one of the librarians they are for the African Library, or bring them to our next EWMS Teen Korps chapter meeting on Thursday, Feb. 7th.
When: Before February 22nd.
For more info: Please see Ms. Tirona, Solana Beach librarian, or contact us.
If every EWMS Teen Korps member donates 5 items, we will have reached our goal. Thanks for your support!
