Book Drive Sponsored by ESL Class

Tue, Oct 30th, 2012

October 26, 2012 launched the beginning of a four-week book drive sponsored by students in the ESL 1143 Composition class.

The students are working to collect a variety of books to support the ongoing literacy efforts of Better World Books, which has raised over $12 million towards literacy programs and libraries in the USA and Africa through the daily sale online of donated books.

Better World Books receives donations into their warehouse, separates them into books to be shipped to teachers and schools in Africa without sufficient book resources, and then puts all other donated books up for sale online. The program has also kept over 92 million books from landfills.  

All types of books are welcome, even reference books and textbooks. Magazines and journals cannot be donated. Green collection boxes are located at the following places around campus:

  •     Natural Resources building
  •     JL Dining Hall
  •     JL 312
  •     DVD first floor (near library)
You are welcome to donate books from home. Please contact Carla Ryan-Hirst if you have a stack of books and would like students to pick them up from you.
