Give Your Books a New Home: Books for Africa

Do you have textbooks that can't be returned for a refund?  Are you cleaning out your dorm room or office and have great books needing a new home?  Well, we can help you with that!

The Library, in partnership with Better World Books, will be sponsoring a book drive through Friday, December 16, 2011. All books received will be sent to Better World Books who will then sort and sell as many books as possible with proceeds going to our chosen literacy partner, Books for Africa.
