Korematsu Elementary School students, from left, Mason Johnstone, Margo Williams and Alejandro Johnson play a human, a hare and a lion in the fable “The Gone Forever Tree.” Their performance was just one of many presented Wednesday evening by Korematsu students as part of the celebration of their African Library Project. The school’s goal was to gather 1,000 gently used books and ship them to Korematsu’s partner school in Botswana: Kware Primary. Well over 2,500 books have been donated, so Korematsu leaders are planning an additional project, partnering with a school in either Ghana or Malawi. “The students … have gone above and beyond in their efforts to start a library for students they will most likely never meet,” said librarians Ruth Beckon and Shelley Chappell. “But they will always know in their hearts that their efforts truly changed lives.” Wayne Tilcock/Enterprise photo
