With the support of over 100 volunteers and donors, we opened our first Book Box in  2022 and added 3 more Book Boxes at the end of November 2023. We are planning to add another 6 Book Boxes in 2024. We are truly thankful that this project continues to be sustained by the kindness and generosity of so many individuals and businesses.
