Better World Books
This organization is a self-supporting social venture that seeks to fund local and worldwide literacy initiatives by running book drives on college campuses. They send books to students in Africa, support scholarships for young women in Southeast Asia, or send books to literacy centers and libraries affected by Hurricane Katrina. Our chapter will receive $.50 for each book that meets the criteria for a "qualifying book." A qualifying book can be any college textbook with a publication date no older than 5 years. This project is already in place at our campus bookstore. All faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to place their no-value books in the large green and white "Book Drive" box located outside the campus bookstore after each buy-back period. Phi Theta Kappa members will box the books and label them for shipment at the end of each semester.
For more information, contact Cherie Barth in room S302a.
