The purpose of Libraries of Love is to partner with Africans to create libraries in individual schools. Through reading,students will develop a love or literature, as well as strengthen their knowledge in each curriculum subject area. Lifelong readers becomme lifelong learners. Therefore, the libraries will serve as bridges to a better future for the children of Uganda.

At present:
36 school libraries
36 sponsored children
1 student in college (six college graduates)
food program feeding 40 children a day.

Mission Statement: Each library is well stocked and organized. Each is a life-time commitment. We constantly train librarians, staff, and principals. Libraries are restocked as books are worn or lost. As Director, I live in Uganda six months each year.

Geographic service area: Austin area. Other organizations provide books, but we haven't found organizations that provide actual libraries that are comparable to libraries in America.

Project Scope

CHALLENGE

The Libraries of Love website went down unexpectedly after it was comprised. A temporary Wordpress site was launched for the interim but it needs polishing and there is some content that would be useful to migrate from the old site.

SOLUTION

Polishing the Wordpress site by applying a modern theme and migrate more media content from the old site.
