The Community Maker Library is a new library in rural Haiti located in the center of Fond des Blancs. It was founded to provide educational and literacy opportunities to the local community. It was made possible through the Kellogg Foundation, the estate of Ellin Smalley, the Hershey Foundation, and Jean Paul Valette and is officially titled "The Haiti Projects Community Library in memory of Ellin Smalley.
We Are LIT is honored to collaborate with two Detroit-based independent bookstores on the initiative; and in support of the effort has curated a special collection of children's books, many in the Haitian Creole/French language to purchase for donation now thru May 6th. All books purchased from this collection will be shipped directly to the library in Haiti. Your support is needed and much appreciated!
