Books for Africa celebrates its 25th Anniversary

Posted: Updated:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP)- A local group dedicated to getting the written word to people in need turns the page to a very special milestone.

Books for Africa celebrated its 25th Anniversary earlier Saturday, holding a block party outside their warehouse in St. Paul.

Over the years the group has shipped 29 million English language books to Africa, where they go to kids in dire need of them.

"The need is tremendous in Africa. We've sent 28, 29 million books and that is tremendous, but there's 400 million children in Africa so there's a lot of kids still waiting for their books," says Books for Africa Director Patrick Plonski.
