Better World Books
Better World Books uses the power of business to change the world by collecting and selling books online to donate books and fund literacy initiatives worldwide. Besides selling new titles, Better World Books supports book drives and collects used textbooks through a network of over 2,300 college campuses and partnerships with over 3,000 libraries nationwide. To date, Better World Books has converted more than 58 million books into over $10.4 million in funding for literacy and education. In the process, we’ve also diverted more than 40,000 tons of books from landfills. With more than 8 million new and used titles in stock, they are a self-sustaining, triple-bottom-line company that creates social, economic and environmental value for all our stakeholders.
All books are available with free shipping worldwide by utilizing the attached to send unwanted textbooks in to Better World Books on Kaplan Golden Key's behalf. Please remember that this is a textbook drive aimed at books used in a college setting that you as students no longer have use for and would like Better World Books to try to reuse. Donations this year from Kaplan students will be sold to benefit www.RoomtoRead.org and if they are unable to be sold, textbooks will be donated to www.BooksForAfrica.org.
