DeKALB – Organizers are seeking donations for a garage sale to build a library and resource center in Tanzania.

The Tanzania Development Support, a local nonprofit organization, is sponsoring a garage sale from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 3 and 4 at 201 Thornbrook Road in DeKalb, according to a news release.
