We pay you and your chosen literacy partner for books that you no longer want and you don't pay a dime. Keep books out of landfills and put money in your pocket and in the pocket of great groups such as these. It's just that simple.
With our online Prescreen Tool it's easy to determine what to ship. You can scan books and get an instant response on what we're accepting.
We take tremendous pride in our shipping and logistics options. We have very low minimum shipment requirements and will work with you to individually address your specific storage capacities and shipping needs.
NEVER. We determine where your books will be best used. Either we'll sell it to raise money, donate the book directly to one of our nonprofit literacy partners or we'll recycle it. Check out what we've done so far.
