Here at Discover Books, we re-purpose millions of books every single year. We are proud to say that we do our very best to keep books out of landfills and find new homes for them so that the stories can be retold again and again to new readers!
We wouldn’t be able to do any of this wonderful work without our loyal followers and those people who donate to us. Because of you, we are able to continue on our mission to Let The Stories Live On so we want to send out a big, heartfelt “THANK YOU!” for all of the books you have donated to us over the years and will continue to donate in the future! Continuing to donate and to spread the word about Discover Books the world to us…but it means even more to another special group of people as well….wondering who?? Keep reading!
One question that we get ALL of the time is “So, what do you do with the books?”…and we LOVE answering this question! As we mentioned, we try to re-purpose them in any way we can. Some are recycled to become new items like home insulation and newspaper print. Others are used to stock the shelves of our online bookstore at www.discoverbooks.com.
But the BEST part of our re-purposing process and the part that matters most, is DEFINITELY the ability to donate to young readers across the country and around the world to promote literacy!
Instead of telling you in words how much of an impact your donations have had on the lives of these young readers, we thought it would be much more fun to show you! Below we have compiled the happiest series of photos that you will ever see. These smiling faces will cherish the stories that they have been given for years and years to come. We couldn’t be more excited to show you what we mean! You can see even more smiling faces on our Facebook and Twitter pages now!
Enjoy and keep donating!
