Keep the books flowing! Send just ONE BOX of children's books and we will combine them to create full libraries. Can't host a book drive at all? Support the African Library Project and help us donate masks in the Bay Area. We're partnering with HomeFirst, a local nonprofit, to give reusable face masks for every $25 you donate.
