Thousands of donated books will find a new home in Liberia this spring where they will be used to stock a new library at the National Archive Center in Monrovia, Liberia thanks to the efforts of Textbooks for Liberia and the Union of the Liberian Associations in the Americas.
The books were picked up from the San Juan School Unified School District Warehouse on June 3 and are scheduled to sail to Liberia on June 6, 2013.
We, Textbooks for Liberia, take this opportunity to thank the numerous kind individuals and groups for their support of our project and immense guidance. Without your continuous support, this project would not have been successful. We greatly appreciate your help!
Thank you so much,
