We are thankful to the following organizations for partnering with us to build classroom libraries, start antiracism focused book clubs, or donate books to not-for-profits: Brook Park Library, American Family Insurance, Glenview Middle School, and Greater Lakes Academy. Organizations like Maywood Youth Mentoring (MYM) was one of the recipients. Pictured on the left is (MYM) Executive Director, Barbara Cole and Afriware Books founder Nzingha Nommo. MYM received copies of "Hair Love" for a women empowerment program for mothers 18-25.
Here is one of the creative ideas these organizations came up with to add diversity to existing school curricula and in-classroom library materials:
- Create a wish list of books
- Invite Afriware to provide a webpage for your school/institution for the book list
- Invite parents/teachers/public to purchase books from the webpage using a code that will be assigned to you for a specific date range.
- Watch the daily sales climb in a spreadsheet provided by Afriware Books
- At the end of the period, books are tallied and shipped to your location or picked up in-store.
