Beautiful libraries

The Library Project donates libraries to improve children’s literacy. Children gain access to a beautiful school library providing fun and interesting children’s books that spark their imaginations and promote a lifelong love of reading. Having fun educational books easily available helps to encourage independent learning, intellectual curiosity, and a lifelong passion for reading.

All of our library donations have a teacher training component. This course covers how to properly loan books to students, how to use the children’s books in a classroom setting, and how to get the students involved in the maintenance of their library.

Local language children’s books

We provide a wide range of local language children’s books including history, science, short stories, fairy tales, books for very young readers, children’s dictionaries, children’s reference books, and an assortment of comic books. Each school also receives a full set of children’s encyclopedias for older students. Every book is in full color and of the highest print quality. To acquire our books, we work with various large bookstores’ regional warehouses, online book distributors, and also resellers.

"I like the new library. I would love to come here often. I don't know what my favorite book is, there are so many books."

 "I had never seen so many books before. Now my classmates and I borrow a book every Friday."

Help us donate libraries to rural primary schools, orphanages and community centers in Asia.
