Hi all,


Does anyone have any helpful advice/experience regarding sending books to Africa?  If so could you please let me know.

Hi Jen,


Samuel (African Div student who works in stacks) was just asking me if I knew of an organization that sends books to Africa.  I said that I didn’t and that I thought it was expensive to ship them but I remember hearing at APLA in Saint John a few years ago that someone, I think in NF or Labrador perhaps, had made shipping arrangements (maybe using a shipping container?) to send books overseas at a reasonable cost.  Do you know anything about this?  if you have information Samuel would like to forward it to a friend of his who is teaching in a school in Ghana and is in need of books.
