Have you seen these boxes around campus? Have you then thought what are they for?
These boxes are for collecting unwanted textbooks in support of non-profit literacy programs. This program finds the best possible use for each book collected in support of promoting literacy. The donated books in the boxes are then collected by the library staff. From there we send them to the organization, Better World Books, which is located in Mishawaka Indiana.
Once Better World Books receives them, the books are either to be sold, to raise money for non-profit literacy programs, sent to one of Better World Book programs or recycled if unsuitable for sale or partner use. We are a proud sponsor of this program and our Better World Box is located in the Hammond Campus Library near the printer areas.
