Education transforms communities
Hello, and welcome to Libraries for All! This website is run by Alina Guyon, who started and has operated this small non-profit since 2017. Follow me along my journey of making the world a better place through providing access to books and essential learning materials!
Libraries for All
My journey started with a small project; to send books to a place where people lacked access to them. The idea grew, and grew until I had spent over a year planning (2016-2017), collecting books, applying for a grant, packing a container, and finally traveling across the world. My first library, pictured below, opened in July 2017 after numerous hurdles detailed in my blog. Despite that, my first library, located in Ndejje, Uganda, became the most treasured and highly utilized space in all of its surrounding community. This gave me energy and excitement to formally create my own non-profit in 2018 (status sponsored through Visions Made Viable).
Since then, I have built two more libraries, one in Kolkata, India and the other in Seattle, USA.
Stay tuned for my forth library to be in Zimbabwe! Due to COVID, the project has taken much longer than anticipated, although, it is still in the works.
