Earl Warren Middle School Teen Korps is a youth organization offering opportunities for teens to engage in community service. The Solana Beach Library partnered with them for a Book Drive to collect books and start the Twenedrase Community Library in Ghana, where they currently do not have a library at all. The new Twenedrase Library will serve the general community and the K-8th grade students in the local school. The book drive, which ran through April at the Solana Beach Library, was a huge success, and the team of Teen Korps students, parents and library volunteers collected and packed 15 boxes, including well over 1,000 books and other educational materials. The boxes were mailed to Ghana on May 7. For more information on the African Library Project or to inquire how to start your own book drive, please go to: www.africanlibraryproject.org.
