The Liberian Librarian

That's me.

I spent some time today going through and organizing the first big donation of children's books. Actually, now that I think about it, I don't even think I've told you about the other big donation drive that I've been doing. The kids at my church are doing a children's book drive to send books to the kids in Liberia! They are tying it into their Valentine's Day party and bringing "valentine's" (books) for Liberia. Anyway, after church on Sunday, I picked up about 10 boxes of books from a woman who's office had chipped in and bought books off of Craigslist. Well, now I have 492 books to ship to Liberia!!

Here's a bullentin board that I made at church to advertise for the book drive.

And here are today's books!

And, I swear someone raided my bookshelf from the 4th grade!

I'm a book addict. I wish I'd known. I'd have sent some kids books with the vitamins. Let us know if you need more. How do you ship them?

I ship everything on a shipping container, thanks to the wonderful ministry of Service to Servants!

Hello! My school would like to have a book drive and donate to Liberia. Is there any way you could help us with this? Please e-mail me at miracles_online@yahoo.com

Thank you so much for all you are doing!
