When John Olson, Science Specialist for the MN Dept. of Education, went to Liberia, he found that library of his school had many books with Minnesota school stamps.
He planned his biology lessons with a textbook from Verndale High School and read a novel from Anderson Open School. These had been sent to Africa by a St. Paul based organization, Books for Africa (BFA).
BFA collects, ships and distributes books to students of all ages in Africa. They are the largest shipper of donated text and library books to the African continent. They collect all types of books appropriate for African students.
High school and college textbooks are especially needed. As a general guideline, books should be less than ten years old.
You can drop off books at their St. Paul warehouse or ship them to the Atlanta workshop.

Help to end the book drought in African schools!
