The MPL goes green with Better World Books October 22, 2009

Posted by mplibrary in @ your library.


The Merner Pfeiffer Library has joined Better World Books, a company which resells used books and contributes funds to global literacy, plus saves books from landfills. Our membership will help us on several levels:

-The library can ship discards to BWB for free and they will resell, donate, or recycle the books.

-Everyone on campus can shop BWB’s online bookstore at http://www.betterworld.com
and get 10% off using this coupon code: RUF09 (that is zero9)

-If any of our discards are sold, proceeds are given to our chosen charity, the National Center for Family Literacy www.famlit.org

-Students can run a book drive on campus for a service project through BWB’s Reuse First for Students program.

BWB has already raised over $7 million for global literacy and has saved over 29 million books from landfills.

Here is a YouTube clip of a CNN story about BWB!
