Better World Books logo

Better World Books resells books online, and donates the rest to various charitable organizations. They are recycled only as a last resort. A portion of their revenue goes to supporting literacy programs. You can see details of all this on their “Our Impact” page.

See the map for drop-off locations. Books must be in good condition, and textbooks must be no older than ten years. See their donation guidelines if you are not sure.

If you have a very large number of books, contact them by email. If you are far from any drop-off location, you can ship books to them, and they pay the shipping. See also information about for booksellers.
