A BOLD Venture to Help Others

Guest blogger and book drive organizer, Lynita Mitchell-Blackwell shares a powerful story of how her community came together to start multiple libraries for students in Kenya.

We exist to honor our connection to others. Leading Through Living Community does this by helping people’s light shine bright on that path to connection. One of the ways we do this is through book and magazine publishing. So when we searched Instagram for a literacy organization that aligned with our philosophy, the African Library Project popped up immediately.  

I reviewed the ALP website and knew that this was a match made in heaven! As publishers, we love reading and embrace the power of literacy to change the world. ALP is an organization dedicated to spreading global literacy by establishing libraries. When I shared the drive criteria with the LTLC team, everyone was excited and ready to work.


Five Books Set in Africa You Should Add to Your Summer Reading


Summertime has arrived and with it a slew of family vacations, summer jobs, and what can sometimes feel like an endless amount of time to spare. Rest assured that ALP has you covered. We've curated a list of five amazing young adult books that take place right underneath the African sun.

The books range in genre but we guarantee all of them will transport you to fantastical worlds and on mysterious adventures all while giving you a unique look at Africa's long history. So grab something comfortable, cozy up in your favorite reading spot, and crack open one of these five magical summer reads.

This is a story about books, Africa, libraries, and my dad. Just a few weeks ago my dad turned 94 years old. While his health has recently started to fail, he continues to find ways of supporting the African Library Project. As a retired educator, I seem to have fallen into an almost full-time volunteer job (for at least the next few years) collecting books, making libraries, fundraising for libraries, and speaking to schools, churches, and other organizations to encourage and support them in establishing libraries for Africa. But having had a hand in many, many libraries in the past 2 ½ years, I could not be doing this all alone!
