Choosing the Community

  • We work with communities who have no books or educational materials.
  • We work with communities who are learning English as a second language.
  • Community leaders interested in working with our organization must submit a written narrative that includes:
    • a vision of how the library will impact and improve the quality of education in their community
    • a plan for sustaining the library upon completion (operating costs, librarian salary).
    • an agreement that the library will be accessible to the entire community
  • We work with communities who agree to partner with our organization in providing volunteers from within the community to assist with the labor.
  • The community must have land available to build on or an existing structure that can be renovated.
