DC Bookstore Helps a Zambian Library

Politics & Prose has launched an employee book drive to provide more than 4,000 titles for a new library that it’s funding in Zambia. Jane Meyers, founder of the Lubuto Library Project , believed strongly that those books should come from an independent bookstore.

The result is a partnership between Dow Jones and Washington, DC’s Politics and Prose Bookstore & Coffeehouse that will fill the indigenously styled library with titles carefully selected to provide educational opportunities to Zambia’s street kids, orphans, and other at-risk children.
