Book Drive for Tanzania Teaching Foundation

INSTRUCTIONS:   Books we need range in grade level from pre-school to 4th grade.  While the students will soon be entering high school level, the books are in English - their third language.  

These books have been screened for those without too much "Americana culture" - some of which is inappropriate for young Tanzanian students. 

Paperbacks are very much preferable because they are lighter weight for shipping.  Some of these books come only in hardback, e.g., many of the Dr. Seuss books.    

Several copies are requested of some books, or are part of a set or specific books by the same author.

Books can be dropped off at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church Office by July 1, 2022

1515 Harrison Ave. NW

Olympia, WA 98502
