Abstract

A number of International Organizations have donated books and provided cash for book purchases toward library development in Ghana. This essay has attempted to examine the roles played by the Ghana Book Trust and the Ranfurly Library Services. An attempt has also been made at the determining the importance and impact of book aid. A justification for the continued reliance on book aid has been made despite dissenting views on this type of assistance. The essay concludes by making recommendations for improving the book donation programme in Ghana.
