Cost: by donation
The library we are raising money for is to be located in an old house made of stone that was donated by the local community. By supporting this reading room, APLA will help CODE provide students, teachers and other members with access to much-needed reading materials, in English and local languages. APLA’s support will also go toward staff training as well as furnishings for the new library. APLA participates in CODE’s adopt a library program annually.
We hope you can join us!
