Our library is not taking donations now but you can still pass those books on to several places that will be happy to have them.
Better World Books was born in 2001, when a group of recent college graduates sold their used textbooks online. Their success eventually led to the creation of a revolutionary new business model where used books are collected primarily from libraries, booksellers, colleges, and universities in six countries and then are either resold online, donated or recycled. To date, Better World Books has donated almost 27 million books worldwide, has raised close to $29 million for libraries and literacy and has saved more than 326 million books from landfills. With the backing of the not-for-profit Better World Libraries, Better World Books will enhance these valuable services to libraries and readers. There is a Better World collection box in the parking lot of Consumer Center-Hwy 36, West Long Branch
Goodwill, Salvation Army and the AAUW all take used books and give your books another life. Either raising funds for their charity or creating college scholarships as the AAUW does these organizations are a win win for both parties. Check your local listings for drop off centers.
