Library Spotlight



Bailey Library at Slippery Rock University

"The Bailey Library at Slippery Rock University is a relative newcomer to the Better World Books Library Discards & Donations Program and is finding a tremendous benefit through our new PreScreen Program. To let them tell it:

“Since using Better World Books, we have been able to sort the titles using Better World’s (PreScreen) system and let BetterWorld.com sell for us. We still have book sales, but find we don’t have any leftovers. We no longer have to cut apart covers, sort paper and have someone come pick up the recycled material. It’s a win-win situation, our Friends group profits from Better World selling for us and we also get to donate to the National Center For Family Literacy”. reading room

In fact, the efforts of the Bailey Library have already generated over $100 for literacy on just over 200 books sold and we know that they are just getting started! Through their future shipments, they will continue to create funding for NCFL to further their mission to create educational and economic opportunity for the most at-risk children and parents here in the United States. With the extra revenue they will generate for their Friends of the Bailey Library, they intend to purchase the leisure reading materials and best sellers that they offer in the comfort of the library’s reading room.

Special thanks to Mary Purdy for pioneering the Better World Books Library Discards & Donations PreScreen Program at her library and for her contributions to this article."

Way to go, Mary!
