Adopt a library
Establish a library within an existing school. Each of these libraries serves hundreds of students annually and includes as many as 300-1,000 local language and English language books (depending on the size of the school). Your sponsorship will encourage the habit of reading among children by funding the creation of a child-friendly learning environment that includes: books, furniture, games, puzzles, posters, and three years of librarian training and support BBALP.
With a generous grant of $15,000 you will have the opportunity to dedicate the library you have supported. A plaque with the dedication language of your choosing will be place in the library. You will receive a completion report detailing the community we partnered with to establish the library, a description of the challenge grant and photos of the finished library, including the dedication plaque.
Your contribution could fund a full year of dynamic library programming and community outreach. Preschoolers can attend story hours, young readers can join library book clubs, teenagers can take part in competitive debate – and that’s just the beginning. Supporters who adopt a library receive a certificate of appreciation and free advertisement for their contribution.
