The Books for the World project provides Rotarians & the community an opportunity to connect for a cause.

Wisconsin Books for the World supports global literacy and education by collecting used school and library books throughout the state and sending them to developing countries. Books for the World is coordinated by the Madison Breakfast Rotary Club.

Since Books for the World began in 2000, Rotary clubs from across the country have shipped thousands of tons of used textbooks that would have otherwise been discarded to 25 countries in southern Africa, Central and South America, India, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

Now, we need your help. We’re so lucky to have local schools that have generously donated books and volunteers willing to prepare them to be shipped, but getting the books overseas is an expensive endeavor.

We are half way into our campaign to raise enough money to ship two truck-loads of books. We need your help to meet our goal of $5000.

A $15 contribution is enough to ship 5 boxes of books, so each dollar counts. Please click below to donate!
