Midwestern Nonprofits Team Up to Promote Literacy in Africa

Books for Africa and Little Free Library have collaborated to ship and distribute books to schools, libraries, and other organizations in Africa.

Both individually and together, two Upper Midwest nonprofit organizations are reaching beyond America’s heartland to fulfill their mission of making books accessible to all. In 1988 Books for Africa was founded in St. Paul, Minn. Little Free Library was founded in Hudson, Wis., in 2009 and works on all seven continents. The two have partnered on shipping books to Africa for distribution to schools and libraries there since 2013.
