Find and contact organisations that donate books

Status: In progress
Step: 
2

Through the efforts of many Neighbours over the past 18 months Garden Library has received many donated books! The library has the capacity to hold over 4000 books however right now the library holds 500 books. We have empty shelves! The Library needs more books!

Volunteers are needed to keep searching for organisations that can help with donating books. A document- LIST OF DONOR BOOKS appears in the Resources section for a list of organisations to follow up. We need books for young children from 5 years of age up to young adults of 22-24 years of age. General reading books and some useful, current text books are great too. English language books are required.

Hi, Mulenga

The www.big-books.org is preparing a shipment of books baed on our application/request form, but we'll have to come up with the shipping costs. Has their been any promising news from the Rotary Club?

The Books for Africa organization ships books only in very large quantities.

I have not heard back from the remaining org's that I have emailed. I will continue down my list and send emails to another 4-5 organizations.

Mary

Second, I have added some additional contacts in the wiki (I think this is located under the wrong task -- Tjeerd if you need me to move it, I'll give it a try.) No new good leads for book donations. I'm finding some of the "donation" organizations are actually books for sale. We'll keep working our way through the list. I think Sinead was making some contacts as well. Any luck on your end?

First, Hello to Pravesh and Carolyn!

No new good leads for book donations. I'm finding some of the "donation" organizations are actually books for sale.

We'll keep working our way through the list.

I think Sinead was making some contacts as well. Any luck on your end?

As you can see it is not complete. I hope that Mulenga and I will be able to talk in the next few days to fill in the gaps.

Please let me know your thoughts and feedback- it would be very helpful!
