Happy New Year APLA!  


I would like to extend a great big thank you to everyone who took the opportunity to support CODE and the APLA sponsored library in Solomon Mahlangu, Tanzania this past holiday season.  Over the holidays, we raised $250 for our library!


If one of your resolutions is to “give back” or “daily good deeds”, remember CODE is a great way to feel good by helping the children of the world to read!

Subject: CODE - a gift solution


Thinking about what to give that librarian in your life, your child’s teacher or anyone on your Christmas List? Think about giving the gift of literacy. APLA and its Grow a Library Committee are the proud supporters of CODE.  CODE programs support libraries and teacher training in Africa and the Caribbean and APLA has adopted the Solomon Mahlangu library in Tanzania.


Donate to CODE on behalf of that special someone on your list! It’s a great gift that will help the children of this world. As CODE says: If you can read and write, you can learn to do, and be, anything.


To donate to CODE and the Solomon Mahlangu library in Tanzania, click on the CODE link off the APLA homepage. www.apla.ca.
