Donate to Better World Books! - College of Charleston Libraries

February 11, 2010

Better World Books ( is a national organization that hosts student-run book drives on various university and college campuses. Upon singing up to participate, all the required materials are sent directly to the individuals organizing the book drive (i.e. all flyers, donation boxes, shipping boxers). The donated books are then either sold online, with all profit going to one of five charities, or the books are directly donated to one of the literacy charities. Currently, Better World Books is affiliated with these five charity programs: Books for Africa, Room to Read, Worldfund, the National Center for Family Literacy, and Invisible Children.

The box to donate the books is on the first floor near the main staircase in the alcove.
