How to Apply

    • Once I submit the Library Application Form, will I get a Library immediately?

Finding donors to finance Libraries is an ongoing process. We are constantly working to find individual donors, foundations and corporations to fund our programs. Submitting your application is just the first step in letting us know that you’re interested. We’ll let you know when we match your site with a donor.

    • Can I use our own funding or finding a donor ourselves to support a Library?

It would be great if you have funding or donor to support a Library for your site. This will definitely speed up the library installation process. Partial support is welcomed too.

    • What books will be included in my Library? Can I choose them?

All our books are quality, hardback children books in Eng and Chinese. They’ll be wrapped before sending out. We take the utmost care in selecting books for each site. We do our best to customize the booklist for each Library, keeping in mind the ages, languages, reading levels and special needs of the children at the site. You usually cannot choose the books yourselves.
