African Book Trust brings libraries to South Africa

June 12, 2018

The Friends of the African Book Trust granted $5,558 to support the distribution of books from African authors to libraries in South Africa. Since 2016, the African Book Trust has raised funds to purchase books for community and school libraries, which are often poorly resourced. It promotes a culture of reading, supports South African literature, and preserves local stories by making them available to the public.
