Books For Africa
It’s the face of Liberia that is now capturing world attention. A coordinated fight is taking place in the African nation to control the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.

Books For Africa says it has shipped around 1.9 million books to 21 African countries in the past 12 months, a new high for the St. Paul-based nonprofit.
