Call for Book Donations

Florida International University’s African & African Diaspora Studies Program (AADS) is currently accepting books to donate to the University of The Gambia’s library (UTG). This donation will take place within the framework of a Memorandum of Understanding or MOU FIU has signed with the UTG. AADS has collaborated with the UTG for the offering of a study abroad program that brought FIU students to Senegal and The Gambia.

All books are welcome, including children's books. Scholarly books, college level textbooks, and any work of literature will be donated to the UTG library. All children’s books will be donated to K-12 school "The Learning Tree" located in Manjai, near Banjul, The Gambia’s capital city. If you have books to donate, please contact Ms. Reyni Valerio at 305-348-4156 or via email at valerior@fiu.edu or at Labor Center building room 325 to make pickup arrangements. We would like to complete the collection of donated books by April 30, 2016.
