Run a Campus Book Drive
Worldwide Book Drive accepts ALL books.

Worldwide Book Drive wants to find books that people are not using and redistribute these books to locations where there is a real need.   We accept books of all types, including hardcover, paperback, fiction, textbook, reference and library discards and we accept books in all conditions. We sort each book that comes into our warehouse based on its type and quality.  Most of the books we receive are donated to those in need or, if they are too damaged or obsolete, are recycled.  About 6% of the books are sold to pay for the shipping costs of books that we distribute and to cover our overhead expenses and growth.

*We will accept any book, provided you can deliver it to one of our, or our partners’ locations.

Book drives benefit our global community.

Worldwide Book Drive works with organizations to distribute hundreds of thousands of books locally and internationally.  According to the CIA World Factbook, an estimated 785 million people 15 years and older live without basic literacy skills.  Access to proper reading tools, like books, is one of the greatest contributing factors.  By putting books into the hands of those who are eager to learn but do not have the means, we can give the gift of education and learning to men, women and children worldwide.  In addition, through our book collection efforts, we have rescued hundreds of thousands of damaged and obsolete books and magazines from landfills and have helped turn these books back into usable paper.

Running a book drive is a small service that you can provide to greatly impact your community and communities worldwide.

If you commit to run a college club book drive, Worldwide Book Drive will provide the necessary materials, including book-drop boxes, fliers, and the cost of return shipping.   We only ask that you and your group contribute the necessary enthusiasm and energy to run a successful book drive!
