Better World Books has just made it easier to promote literacy as a global goal. And, drop boxes are currently available… EVERYWHERE! As part of a tireless commitment, this online book location is innovative in their unyielding efforts.
They donate to Books for Africa, one of their longtime non-profit literacy partners, and Feed the Children, who champion finding homes for donations. All literature collected as of November 27, 2012: over 6.4 Million. Literacy and Education Action Program (LEAP) sponsors libraries and educational non-profits for specific projects; front lines in a fine effort to reduce global poverty through education. And, as part of a commitment to environmental sustainability, they never throw away a book. Any book they cannot find a proper home for is recycled.
Doing good is written into their business model. Better World Books is a global bookstore that harnesses the power of capitalism to bring literacy and opportunity to people around the world. Yesterday, they celebrated President’s Day by quoting the Father of our Country:
I absolutely love continuing to promote this innovative online literary business (which also carries copies in the Forgotten Hollywood Book Series).
Congratulations to my friend, Beatriz Sarmiento, on her recent promotion to Director of Library Services at the City of Commerce Public Library. She has been very involved in working on expanding literacy in this bilingual community in Southern California. And, she is a wonderful individual. BEATRIZ SARMIENTO
Beatriz just emailed me to show support for my work by adding the Forgotten Hollywood Book Series to their catalog. This makes 101 library branches carrying my paperbacks; with 86 locations holding Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, and Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History on 40 shelves.
Until next time> “never forget”
