Giving bags of books
Since 2006, we have given away 1,083 ‘library-in-a-bag’ gifts to deserving library members. Each gift includes eight new Ghanaian storybooks, a towel, and a bar of soap in a hand batiked bag decorated with the words “Joy of Reading.”
Most gifts have gone to children in different parts of Ghana who attend OCLF-sponsored libraries. A few have been presented to adult learners who attend our literacy classes in Accra. These gifts have been made possible by donations from many friends of OCLF.
