Better World Books and the National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL) are seeing a big impact from the Libraries and Families grants that have been awarded to 9 library programs across the country, thus far. Libraries spanning Providence, Rhode Island to San Diego, California, have participated in the program by providing new and innovative ways to bring families together over literacy and learning. “These libraries provide a critical service for our communities and are passionate about the families they serve,” said John Ujda, Vice President of Marketing for Better World Books.
Funding for this program comes from the Better World Books for Libraries program, a free service that helps libraries manage their unwanted books. Better World Books sells those books online, sharing the revenues with the libraries and its nonprofit literacy partners.
