Donate Your Used Textbooks!
FORGE, CUTIES, and Circle K have teamed up to collect your unwanted books for Better World BooksDo you have textboooks that you're no longer using, after this semester? Would you like to send them to a good cause instead of a landfill or that ever-growing Shelf Space of Obscurity?
We'd love to take care of them for you!
This semester, student groups including FORGE, CUTIES, and Circle K have teamed up to collect your unwanted books for Better World Books to benefit Books For Africa. We're collecting college-level books
from within the past 10 years (some highlighting/writing in them is fine) as well as novels and other books of general current interest that you'd like to donate.
Some of the books will be shipped overseas to stock schools & universities in African regions that cannot afford those resources. Many will be sold online to raise money for shipping & distribution costs. If there are any books that we can't use, such as textbooks/readers that were printed specifically for your class, we'll
make sure these get recycled or used locally.
Donating books is easy! You can simply put them in one of the brightly colored collection boxes which will be in the lobby of many campus buildings (plus the UC info desk) between November 30 and December 14.
Please forward this e-mail to anybody you'd like!
