The new Chamisa School K-Kids Club is collecting books to create a 1,000 book school library for the Bwaila LEA School in Zomba City, Malawi, Africa. This is being done in cooperation with the African Library Project. (Learn more at ).

The project  has created more than 2,000 school libraries in English-speaking African schools over the last 10 years.

During the next month, the students will be collecting new and used books in good condition at a preschool through eighth grade reading level. Books on science and math topics for kids are especially valuable, but books with religious or holiday themes or those on American history are not needed.

In addition, the students are planning some fundraising activities to help with the $500 shipping costs for the library. Books can be dropped off at the school office during school hours or contact Sharon Allen at for a pick up.
